Samson, Dube might be selected for Bangladesh T20Is
Indian domestic players Sanju Samson and Shivam Dube are likely to be included in the Indian T20I squad for the home series against Bangladesh.
India are currently busy in hosting South Africa for a three-match T20I series as a part of their ICC Test Championship schedule. With one more Test to go, India are leading the series 2-0 with two back to back huge wins over the visitors.
In the next fixture of their ICC Test Championship, India will meet Bangladesh for a two-match Test series at home. Before that both teams will involve in a three-match T20I series which will start on 3rd of November at Delhi.
Ahead of the T20I series, Indian domestic stars Sanju Samson and Shivam Dube are expected to get a call into the national side, following their recent good form with the white ball in domestic matches as well as for India A.
With Hardik Pandya sidelined with an injury issue, Shivam Dube might be his replacement in the series. The left-handed fast bowling all-rounder is having some terrific hits in the lower order like what Hardik does. In 34 List A matches, Dube has 614 runs and 33 wickets while in 19 T20s, he has scored 242 runs and has 14 wickets.
Sanju Samson recently had two good matches against South Africa A at home. Also he smashed a double ton in the ongoing Vijay Hazare trophy. The wicket-keeper batsman played only one International game that was against Zimbabwe. Since then he is waiting for a chance in the national side.
