Former opener Gautam Gambhir on Tuesday hailed Sanju Samson as "not just the best wicketkeeper batsmen in India but the best young batsman" in the country.

The Kerala youngster, who's often overlooked by the national selectors, played a devastating knock of 74 runs off 32 balls with the help of nine sixes as Rajasthan Royals (RR) set a 217-run target for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the fourth match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.

Gambhir took to Twitter, asking anyone for a debate. And fans heartily engaged in the debate.

In fact, Rishabh Pant, who's often hailed as the heir apparent to MS Dhoni, became a target of many fans.

Gambhir then added that, "It’s weird that the only playing eleven Sanju Samson doesn’t find a place is that of India, rest almost everyone is ready for him with open arms."

Samson, 25, has so far played four T20Is for India.
