Shashi Tharoor calls this batsman 'next MS Dhoni': Gautam Gambhir, Sreesanth don’t agree

Praising Rajasthan Royals player Sanju Samson for his stellar performance, Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor had said: “I have known Sanju Samson for a decade. Had told him when he was 14 that he would one day be the next MS Dhoni.”


Congress parliamentarian Shashi Tharoor was mighty impressed with Kerala batsman Sanju Samson’s performance in the Indian premiere League (IPL) match played against Kings XI Punjab on September 27. Praising the Rajasthan Royals team member for his stellar performance, the Thiruvananthapuram MP had said: “I have known Sanju Samson for a decade. Had told him when he was 14 that he would one day be the next MS Dhoni.”


While Tharoor must have made the comment in good faith, cricketer- turned-Bharatiya Janata Party leader Gautam Gambhir did not take the comparison between Samson and former India cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni well.

Close

Former India team player Sreesanth also echoed the same thoughts and pointed out that it is unfair to draw parallels.
