Sanju along with Dhruv Jurel made a century partnership and gave the team a memorable victory. Former England captain Kevin Pietersen is happy with Sanju's performance. He says that Sanju should be in the Indian team for the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Kevin Pietersen said about Sanju Samson on Star Sports, 'I don't see any doubt that he will fly to the Caribbean and America in a few weeks. He has done a very good job under pressure. The way he has done many things under his captaincy, he has not received attention. In the conditions in which he is scoring, if I were a selector, he would have been one of my first choices.
