Sanjay Manjrekar feels that Rishabh Pant And Sanju Samson must use talent and class to give their Best In IPL 2020. Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson are two young cricketers trying to seal their spot in India’s limited-overs set up as wicket-keepers.

Sanjay Manjrekar: IPL 2020 Will Be Crucial For Enigmatic Rishabh Pant And Sanju Samson
Most eyes will be on the likes of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma but the IPL 2020 will be crucial for both Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson to seal a permanent place in the Indian team in near future.
Rishabh Pant whose age is 21, has struggled to keep his place in the Indian team and is restricted to warming benches and carrying drinks in ODIs and T20Is as KL Rahul is now keeping wickets since January this year onwards. In tests too, Wriddhiman Saha is ahead of him as Rishabh Pant has failed in the last two tests in New Zealand in February with scores of 25,19,4 and 2 which will not help him in the long run.
Sanjay Manjrekar: Consistency Will Be Key For Both Pant and Samson
Meanwhile, who has been drafted into the Indian T20I squad against Sri Lanka in January 2020, has scored only 6 in the final match and disappointed even in New Zealand with scores of 8 and 2 in the fourth and fifth matches. Despite being included in the Indian squad, both of them has not lived up to their reputation and form sustained during previous editions of IPL.
Both Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson have thrown their wickets after being set, so consistency will be a key for them to sustain their places and hence this year’s IPL at UAE will give them another opportunity to perform well and be considered for selection again in the India National Cricket Team.
