‘Management Played With Ambati Rayudu’s Career, Then There Was Unkukt Chand’-Former Cricketer Compares Sanju Samson With India Discards

Recently, former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria has lashed out at the BCCI after Sanju Samson was dropped in New Zealand. In a fresh attack, he cited the examples of Ambati Rayudu and Unmukt Chand and said that the team is treating Samson in the same way. Samson, who was selected for the New Zealand tour, was ruled out of the entire T20 series. He played just one ODI and was again on the bench as Rishabh Pant made the cut.

Comparing him to players like Ambati Rayudu and Unmukt Chand, Kaneria said the management made a mistake by dropping Samson as he has shone with the bat with limited opportunities unlike Pant.

He cited how Rayudu was also at the receiving end of poor team selection as he was dropped from 2019 World despite playing all the games for the cup India in leadership. Apart from this, he also cited the example of Chand, who had to relocate to USA in 2012 despite winning the Under-19 World Cup for India.

“Ambati Rayudu was another player who suffered a lot due to such selections. The team management played with his career by not giving him enough chances. Then there is Unmukt Chand, who has moved to USA to play cricket. There are more players who were not given chances at the right time,” Kaneria said on his YouTube channel.

“If Sanju Samson had so many chances, he would have made a name for himself in international cricket. Poor guy is crying because he has to sit outside. Neither Shikhar Dhawan nor the team management has any answer for this. It’s shameless.”

He also said that if India continues to make unfair decisions then it cannot win ICC trophies, adding that teams are now being picked on ‘personal preference’.

When you treat your players unfairly, that’s what you’re going to get. India has been very unfair to some cricketers and playing with their careers.

“Teams are now being made on the basis of personal preference. Giving more chances to the player, changing the position of others to ensure that the score of the particular player goes up and does not drop.”
