Kerala’ star wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson was excluded from India’s T20I squad announced for upcoming home series against West Indies. The squad was announced on Thursday, November 21, for the series set to begin on December 6.
Samson on Friday tweeted a ‘smiley face’. When last selected for the recently concluded T20 international series against Bangladesh, the 25-year-old did not get to feature even in one game.
With captain Kohli making a coming back to the T20I squad, Samson has been excluded.
