T20 World Cup: Will Sanju Samson get a chance in place of Shivam Dubey? Former CSK opener said- the left-handed batsman will be exposed against Australia

Zero not out, 3, 31 and 10. These are Shivam Dubey’s scores so far in the T20 World Cup. The Afghanistan team was troubling the Indian team on the strength of its spinners. Shivam Dubey was expected to do something different as he was selected for his ability to destroy spinners, but he could not do so. In such a situation, perhaps the time has come to try Sanju Samson in the middle order. Former India and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) opener Murali Vijay has said that Shivam Dubey will be exposed against Australia and South Africa.

Shivam Dube has certainly been a consistent performer in the IPL over the last three seasons, but his struggles against pacers and his lack of footwork, especially in getting forward against spinners, continue to persist. He relies a lot on the free swing of the bat, but on pitches where the ball stops, he has not been able to adjust. The conditions for batting were excellent in the IPL, but he has been tested on the T20 World Cup pitches. He is not one to take clever touches and play the ball in the gaps. When it comes to running between the wickets, he is not the best either.

What did Murali Vijay say?

Former India and Chennai Super Kings opener Murali Vijay spoke about Dube on Star Sports. He said, “IPL is a different kind of game. International cricket is different and I can say Dube is not in form and is struggling…his feet are frozen because he doesn’t have time to move forward. Australia and South Africa will definitely expose him.”

Why should Sanju Samson get a chance?

Will India be brave enough to give Sanju Samson, who can bat anywhere in the order, a chance? With Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel already in place as left-handed batting options, India can afford to make a change going forward. If there is a time to do so, this is it as it will give Samson a chance to settle in ahead of crucial matches. Unlike Dube, Samson is equally good against spinners and pacers. India benched Mohammed Siraj on Thursday and gave Kuldeep Yadav a chance. They will probably make another change on Saturday.
