Kapil Dev was quick to express his disappointment over Sanju Samson’s approach. ‘To be honest, if I have to pick a better wicketkeeper between Karthik, Ishan and Samson then I would say they’re almost at the same level. But in terms of batting, each one is better than the other. But I am extremely upset with Sanju Samson. Being so talented, the guy scores in 1-2 matches and then fails. The lack of consistency upsets me,” Kapil Dev said.

Sanju Samson led his team Rajasthan Royals into the IPL 2022 Finals but could not lift the trophy as the title was bagged by the latest team of Indian Premiere League, Gujarat Titans. Till date Sanju has played 13 T20Is for India and has only manged to scored 174 runs without a single half-century of fifty. Kapil Dev believes the cricketer has a lot of talent and skills but there’s still a lot to be done to earn a permanent name in the Indian Squad.
