Watch: Sanju Samson Goes Bang Bang In Training Session Ahead Of IPL 2023
Sanju Samson was seen practicing some attacking shots ahead of the start of the IPL 2023 campaign.
One of the most popular cricketers in India, Sanju Samson is a man who has extensive fan-following. Though his international career is yet to reach its full potential, Samson remains a highly attractive batter for his teammates and fans. With the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 only a few days away from its commencement, Samon was spotted going all guns blazing in a practice session, executing some big hits against a spinner. As the video of Samson's hitting surfaced on social media, fans' excitement levels went up.
Sanju last played for India in January this year, against Sri Lanka in a T20I series. An injury forced him out of the series and he has since not been able to mark his return to the Indian team. Samson even went to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for his rehab and now seems to be near his 100%.
In the video, Samson can be seen using his feet to smash some big shots. Here's the video:
