The Rajasthan Royals' Sanju Sanson is having a good outing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018. He is currently the holder of the prestigious orange cap with 239 runs to his name.
There is a lot of buzz in the cricket fraternity after Samson's brilliant exhibition of batting and the commentators just can't stop praising the young lad.
However, former India cricketer Vinod Kambli is annoyed with all the praise and adulation for Samson in the commentary box.
Kambli criticized commentators for being too excessive in their praise for the 23-year-old. He later engaged in an argument with Samson's admirers and had to explain his tweet.
"#IPL2018. The amount of talking going on by the Commentators about#Sanju Samson about his domestic season and IPL season like they don't have anything else to talk about. So boring ????????????," he wrote.
Here is how the fans responded:
Because you are so jealous about one south indian player is perfomin well...... U are also a part of that northern lobby....... If any one from south india performs well the selectors won't see that and that player will not were indian blue colour......— Prasad (@Prasadmallya) April 23, 2018
Relax my friend there is no lobby in cricket. Don't provoke people of color and caste— VINOD KAMBLI (@vinodkambli349) April 23, 2018

Ask your selector. MSK Prasad why he is not selecting samson— VINOD KAMBLI (@vinodkambli349) April 23, 2018
Mr. Kambli, Sanju is wearing an Orange Cup now in IPL, hence they speak about him. It would have been great if you were able to speak with your bat like your partner Sachin years back instead of being jealous to new talents— kishor satya (@kishorsatya) April 23, 2018
Would love to see if he keeps it till the end. I am seriously talking the truth— VINOD KAMBLI (@vinodkambli349) April 23, 2018
