Samson was also invited on the same show where he talked about his life journey. And in-between the questions, Samson showed his unique laughing style which was almost the same Kishan had shown earlier. It was also found out that humour indeed comes built-in for Samson.
I'd never thought I will bat with Rahul Dravid: Samson
Coming to the episode where Samson talked about his journey, the Indian cricketer revealed how it felt for him to share the pitch with Rahul Dravid when he was at Rajasthan Royals. Samson said it was one of the special moments in his life and he never thought he would get a chance to bat with one of the legends of the game.
"I'd never thought that I will bat with Rahul Dravid. In my first or second game for Rajasthan, I went one-down to bat when Rahul sir was opening. I knew I was sent to keep the runs coming. I played the first ball for a boundary then Rahul Sir came and said 'Sanju take your time'. The next ball was a bouncer and pulled it somehow for another boundary. He then came and said 'Keep going, keep going'," revealed Sanju Samson.
