Yet another cricketer will lead India in 2022 with Shikhar Dhawan being named the captain for the ODI series against West Indies later this month. The three-match ODI series kicks off on July 2022 and the All India Senior Selection Committee has decided to rest Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah among others, perhaps in a bid to keep them fresh for the five T20Is.

While the omission of a few names like Hardik Pandya did raise a few eyebrows, there are a few names who are surprisingly included in the Indian ODI team. In this article, we will look at four such cricketers who made a surprise entry into the squad.

1. Sanju Samson

Despite showing glimpses of his talent time and again, Sanju Samson just hasn’t been able to do translate that into consistent performances. While one Samson shot could make fans go wow, the very next shot will make one think whether it is the same batter who played the previous ball.

Due to this reason, Samson has only played a solitary ODI so far in his career. That fixture came against Sri Lanka in 2021 where he scored 46 runs but India lost by 3 wickets. At this stage, trying him in an ODI game seems a bit surprising but who knows perhaps an impressive stint here can open more doors for him in the future.
