India’s batsman Sanju Samson is set to perform well in a limited series against Sri Lanka on Sunday. Samson is preparing for this under the supervision of Rahul Dravid. The association of Sanju Samson and Dravid dates back to the time when the same IPL franchise represented the Rajasthan Royals. After ending his career as a cricketer in 2013, Dravid became a mentor to the Rajasthan Royals in 2014 and worked with many young cricketers including Samson.
26-year-old Sanju Samson praised Rahul Dravid and told him about the big moment of his life. On the Star Sports show, Samson said, “Every player who goes to the India A team or the Junior Indian team is fortunate to go by a guy named Rahul Dravid. It was our luck to learn cricket from them.

He said, ‘I remember one day I was going to Rajasthan Royals’ trials. I batted really well and he came up to me and said, ‘Can you play for my team?’ So it was a great moment of my life and I will never forget it. It shows what a great man he is and I really enjoy his company. ‘
Samson was selected to tour England in 2014. But he also got a chance to play the game. A year later, Samson made his international debut against Zimbabwe, but could not do much. He had to wait another five years to play for India. At the beginning of 2020, Sri Lanka will only manage a score of 6, 8, 2, 23, 15 and 10 against New Zealand and Australia. The limited-overs series against India and Sri Lanka will be held from July 18.
