Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson has once again been snubbed from the playing XI of the T20I team despite the absence of some of the senior players. Samson was expected to feature in the first T20I against Afghanistan on January 11, however, fans were left shocked when captain Rohit Sharma unveiled the playing XI at the toss. 

Sanju Samson's name was missing from the roster, while Jitesh Sharma was given a nod by the team management to play as a keeper. Tilak Varma, Shivam Dube, and Rinku Singh are also part of the playing XI but no place for Samson, who has been regularly travelling with the team for the past several months.
