Father had taken retirement to make Sanju Samson a cricketer, such is the whole story of the struggle

Sanju Samson on his Cricket Journey: Sanju Samson, who made his IPL debut at the age of just 18 and debuted in international cricket by the age of 20, wanted to become a cricketer since childhood. His father also had the same dream that Sanju became a cricketer. This is the reason that Sanju’s father took many challenging decisions to make him a cricketer. On Gaurav Kapoor’s YouTube channel ‘Breakfast with Champions’, Sanju Samson has narrated many stories related to the journey of his cricket career. During this, he also told how his parents faced difficulties to fulfill his dreams.

Sanju Samson says, ‘When we were 6-7 years old, for the first time papa took us to the field of Feroz Shah Kotla for net practice. Competition was very high in Delhi. There we gave cricket trials at one or two places, but nothing happened, otherwise my father decided that he would now play from Kerala. Within a month, we left school and shifted to Kerala. It was a very bold decision taken by our parents for me and my brother.

Sanju says, ‘After reaching Trivandrum, we did not get admission in any school for a month or two because we came in the middle session. Finally got admission in a school. Our father was working in Delhi Police and we were in Kerala. When nothing was happening to me in cricket, Papa came to Kerala with voluntary retirement. After that he used to take me and my brother for practice in the morning and evening. He did a lot to get us here.

Sanju further explains, ‘When we used to go to play in Delhi too, our kit bag papa-mummy used to carry till the bus stand. Voices used to come from behind that oh Sachin and his father are also going brother, this will become Tendulkar. He has endured many such funny comments. He was a very confident person for me.

Sanju Samson is currently 27 years old and is the captain of Rajasthan Royals. Under his captaincy, the team of Rajasthan is included in the top-3 teams in this season of IPL and is a strong contender to reach the playoffs.
