In addition, the 29-year-old cricketer had scored a duck in his single T20I match against Afghanistan earlier. However, the star cricketer made his first century for Team India, scoring 108 in the third ODI against South Africa, which India won by 78 runs and helped India win the series by 2-1.

There's a different equation with everyone in the team: Sanju Samson

Meanwhile, Sanju Samson has recently opened up about his teammates and what Jos Buttler, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Shimron Hetmyer mean to him in the IPL camp. The 29-year-old cricketer also shows his excitement ahead of IPL 2024.

"There's a different equation with everyone in the team. With Jos [Buttler], there is like an elder brother kind of relationship, same is the case with Ash [Ashwin] bhai. With Hetty, [Shimron Hetmyer], he's like a friend. I am very fortunate to have some very good connections in our own team. Once you are on the ground, everyone is equal. When you treat them the way they should be treated, everything becomes very normal," Sanju Samson said in the show 'IPL Heroes' on Star Sports.
