Sanju Samson New Team, will Sanju reach Chennai? Never, here are the main reasons… – sanju samson to chennai super kings won’t happen here’s why

Since the end of the 2023 season of the Indian Premier League, one of the rumors is that the Malayalee superstar and the captain of the Rajasthan Royals, Sanju Samson, may leave the team. Chennai skipper MS Dhoni is at the end of his career and Chennai are looking for an Indian wicket keeper to fill the vacant position with his departure and they are considering Sanju Samson, according to reports.

This is one thing that worries Rajasthan Royals fans. They can’t even imagine their icon Sanju leaving the team. But currently rumors are rife that Sanju might go to Chennai, but the reality is that the chances of such a move happening are very low. There are some reasons to say so. Let’s see what it is.

The clues were released by Prasanna Agoram

The news that Sanju may join Chennai Super Kings in the 2024 IPL season has been doing the rounds on social media for the past few days. Famous cricket analyst Prasanna Agoram was the first to give hints in this regard. Prasanna’s disclosure was that he came to know that Dhoni is at the end of his career and that CSK has identified Sanju as his replacement.

Sanju’s high salary will be problematic

Currently, Sanju’s salary in Rajasthan Royals is Rs 14 crores. Sanju’s salary increased to 14 crores ahead of the star auction of the 2022 IPL season. If Chennai want to acquire Sanju next season, they will have to offer the player a sum close to this. For that, Chennai will have to ditch a hugely paid player from the current squad. The chances of this are very low.

Chennai may not consider Sanju as a keeper

Sanju is a wicket keeper batsman. Earlier in the IPL, the player was not a regular wicket keeper, but for the last few seasons, Sanju has been keeping the wicket of the team. Sanju would like to play in the same position next season as playing as a wicket keeper will help him to get a place in the Indian team. But even if Sanju is brought into the team, it is very unlikely that Chennai Super Kings will consider him for keeping. Currently Kiwis player Devon Conway is the player who has secured his place in Chennai. Even if Dhoni leaves, he will be considered for the Chennai wicketkeeper position.

Might not get captaincy

Sanju Samson is currently the captain of Rajasthan Royals. He took over the captaincy of the team in 2021. But even if Sanju goes to Chennai next season, there is little chance of him getting the captaincy of the team. Chennai will also consider players who have been with the team for a long time to replace the vacant captain C with Dhoni’s departure. Ravindra Jadeja and Ruturaj Gaikwad will also be preferred when it comes to this. Sanju also does not want to change from being the captain of an IPL team to being a regular player of a team.

Royals fans are hoping that Sanju will not go to Rajasthan
