Indian Cricket Fans Try to Decode Sanju Samson's Cryptic Tweet After West Indies Series Snub

Kerala wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson responded with a cryptic tweet after he was shown the doors from India's limited format squad against West Indies in the upcoming T20 and ODI series on Thursday.

Riding on a string of stunning innings in the domestic circuit earlier this year, Samson was given a call to join the Men in Blue in the three-match Bangladesh T20 series, where the youngster had to stay content with watching the action along the sidelines.

Instead, Rishabh Pant was chosen over Samson to be a part of the playing XI against Bangladesh.

Despite a wobbly display with the bat and behind the stumps, the Indian selectors have, once again, shown trust in wicketkeeper-batsman Pant and decided to exclude Samson from the squad that is set to take on West Indies in T20 and ODI series starting December 6.

Taking the disappointing news in his stride, Samson, on Friday, tweeted a "smiling" emoji from his Twitter account.

Desi fans sensed what Samson was really implying with his tweet and sent their support out to the dejected cricketer in the most Indian way possible.

One fan went ahead and replied to Samson's post with a "motivational" tweet of Rohit Sharma dated 2018.

The news of Pant getting a place in the squad ahead of Samson came as a shocker to cricket pundits.

Fellow Keralite and Congress MP Shashi Tharoor wasn't very pleased with Samson's snub.

While others simply responded to 24-year-old cricketer's omission with memes.
