Six-Hitting Fest Between Sanju Samson and Jaiswal as Laxman Watches

VVS Laxman, the chief of the National Cricket Academy (NCA), had a front-row seat to a thrilling spectacle as Sanju Samson and Yashasvi Jaiswal showcased their six-hitting prowess ahead of the 3rd T20I between India and Zimbabwe. The Indian T20 World Cup-winning trio of Samson, Shivam Dube, and Jaiswal joined the Indian camp for the remainder of the series after their impressive performances in the T20 World Cup.

Series So Far

Under the interim coaching of VVS Laxman, India’s second-string side, led by Shubman Gill, suffered a surprising defeat to Zimbabwe in the first T20I of the five-match series. However, they bounced back dominantly in the 2nd T20I, securing a comprehensive 100-run victory.

Preparations for the 3rd T20I

The BCCI shared a video showcasing Samson and Jaiswal in a six-hitting contest, with Laxman watching on and occasionally chatting with his support staff. The video highlighted the enthusiasm and readiness of the T20 World Cup winners to make a mark in the series. The BCCI captioned the video, “The #T20WorldCup-winning trio is in the house… and they are Raring To Go.”

Team Changes and Strategy

As the series progresses, Samson is expected to replace wicketkeeper-batter Dhruv Jurel, while Dube might come in for Riyan Parag. Jaiswal’s inclusion in the playing XI is also highly anticipated, though it remains to be seen who will make way for the dynamic opener. Abhishek Sharma, who opened alongside captain Shubman Gill in the first two matches, will be under scrutiny after his mixed performances.

Notable Performances

Abhishek Sharma, despite a five-ball duck on his debut, roared back with a sensational century in the 2nd T20I. His 47-ball hundred, the third-fastest by an Indian in T20Is, powered India to a formidable total of 234/2. This performance has set the stage for an exciting 3rd T20I at the Harare Sports Club.

Looking Ahead

With the series tied at 1-1, the 3rd T20I promises to be a crucial encounter. Fans will be keen to see how the inclusion of experienced players like Samson, Dube, and Jaiswal influences the team dynamics. The Indian team, under Laxman’s guidance, aims to build on their recent success and secure another win against Sikandar Raza’s Zimbabwean side.
