Blunt remark of Sanju Samson on India selection snub after century against South Africa

The wicketkeeper and batsman of Indian Cricket Team Sanju Samson showcased his prowess with a maiden century in his 16th ODI, helping team India to a resounding 78-run victory over South Africa in the decisive 3rd match on Thursday. Elevated to the number three position, Samsung crafted an impressive 108 runs from 114 balls, contributing significantly to India's total of 296 runs at the loss of 8 wickets in their 50 over. Tilak Varma also made a notable contribution with 52 runs.
In a video posted by BCCI, Samsung said that “being an Indian cricketer and with all the media pressure and what goes on and off the field, it is very challenging to keep your mind in the present being real. I like to focus on what is in my control. People might have different choices, but it is all about what you want to improve. Whatever setbacks I had, my failures, and whatever selections I missed out on, I don’t like to complain like the people who have done for me.”
