Team India’s 15-member squad for the upcoming five match T20I series against Australia has been announced. The Selection Committee has given rest to most of the players who were part of the World Cup squad.

While the Men in Blue are gearing up for their upcoming series against Australia starting from November 23, several fans can’t digest the omission of star wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson from the squad yet again.

The exclusion of Samson has disheartened fans as they are raising ‘Justice for Sanju Samson’ slogans on various social media platforms.

“JUSTICE FOR SANJU SAMSON : Indian team for the Australia T20I series is announced yet Sky was made captain with no experience meanwhile Sanju Samson is captaining Rajasthan royals for so many years ,” wrote a fan on social media account X (earlier known as Twitter).

“Uncertain about the selectors’ stance on Sanju Samson. What did he do wrong? Scoring runs in ODIs got him dropped, and now dropped from T20Is too. It’s frustrating. Don’t the Indian selectors see his potential? A lamentable situation for Sanju Samson,” tweeted another fan.

Notably, Samson leads the Rajasthan Royal franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He was also not included in the Indian squad for World Cup 2023 and ODI series against Australia.
