As Indian cricketer and captain of IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals, Sanju Samson, celebrates his birthday on Friday, fans of the game across India are discussing how absence of players like him cost the team a win in the T20 International World Cup semi finals.

On Thursday, India lost to England by 10 wickets in the T20 world cup. Following India’s loss, Indian cricket team selectors are being criticised for not including players like Samson and Prithvi Shaw in the team.

Wishing Samson on his birthday, one twitter user wrote, “Happy Birthday to the present and future of Indian Cricket, #SanjuSamson! Its upto @BCCI now, to utilise this generational talent for benefit of Indian Cricket!”

After Thursday’s match, another user said, “India missing this gem on Australian pitches.”

Calling the wicket-keeper batsman the future of India, one fan wrote, “Happy birthday Sanju samson(The future of india). He didn't get that what he deserves.hopefully now we can see him in indian colors permanently in t20is. He can open, he can finish, he can field, he can keep.what else u need?”

Another fan shared a compilation of some of the best moments of Samson’s cricket career.

Conveying his wishes on Samson’s birthday, another user wrote, “Your smashing performance in the cricket is just outstanding. Your game sparkles and your personality defines your hard work and dedication itself towards the cricket. Hopefully, we’ll see you in Indian Jersey permanently.”

Another fan shared a video of former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir in which he could be heard saying,”If Sanju Samson does not go on to play for India it is not Sanju Samson’s loss, it is actually India's loss. You are losing out on a talent who probably will be a number one batter in the world in future, if you back him.”
