With Ishan Kishan and Dinesh Karthik already in the XI, it would be interesting to see if Samson gets an opportunity in the second T20I on Tuesday. With Pandya stressing after the first match that India are firmly focusing on the road to Men’s T20 World Cup, to be hosted by Australia in October-November, they will be keen to test more players in the second T20I.
India may also have to make a forced change if Ruturaj Gaikwad, who did not open the batting on Sunday due to a calf niggle, doesn’t recover in time with just a day’s gap between the two T20Is. Samson could very well be made to open with Kishan at the top. If that happens, Samson would like to make the most of the opportunity ahead of the T20 World Cup.
