Soon after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced India’s limited-overs squad for the West Indies series, fans expressed their anger on social media for excluding Sanju Samson.

Samson, who was named in the squad for the Bangladesh T20I series, failed to find a spot in the team. He did not feature in any of the three T20Is played against Bangladesh and without playing, was dropped.

While backing Samson and Dinesh Karthik, a fan questioned the board’s decision of giving Rishabh Pant so many chances.

“Iam boycotting the INDvsWI series .. Sanju Samson deserves to be in XI. Pant got enough chances. 8/10 times he fails in both batting and wicket keeping department. Still giving chance and ignoring DK and Sanju. Huge Mistake,” a fan tweeted.

Another fan wrote: “Why Sanju Samson out of squad.!? can’t he deserve single chance..!? why Pant getting more changes even failing many times..!? What kind of partiality is this..!!? Where is transparency..!? @SGanguly99 @BCCI @SirJadejaaaa @RajatSharmaLive #INDvsWI.”

“Feeling sad for sanju Samson,” a user tweeted.

Another user called the exclusion of Samson ‘unfair’. “Sanju Samson is dropped without any chance .. this is unfair !!! injustice..” the user wrote.

India will play three T20Is and as many ODIs against West Indies, starting from December 6. (ANI)

Virat Kohli will be back to leading India after the Twenty20 International and ODI squads for the home series against West Indies were announced on Thursday. Kohli was rested for the T20I series against Bangladesh in keeping with BCCI’s workload management programme.
