In the wake of India being the first country to attempt a landing on the Moon’s south pole, Gautam Gambhir used it as an analogy to sell Sanju Samson’s skills with a witty tweet after Harbhajan Singh praised the Rajasthan Royals batsman for his match-winning knock.

Sanju Samson played a sensational knock of 91 off just 48 balls to steer the India A side to victory against South Africa A in his home town of Thiruvananthapuram. The batsman also proceeded to donate his match fees to the groundsmen who worked hard to ensure play during the rain-affected series.

After seeing his display, Harbhajan Singh and Gautam Gambhir united to praise the flamboyant batsman and even pushed him as a potential No.4 candidate for India. The Turbanator was the first to put out a tweet for Samson which was soon followed with a response from the former Indian opener.

Check out what they tweeted:

“Why not @IamSanjuSamson at number 4 in odi.. with good technique and good head on his shoulders.. well played today anyways against SA A.” 

 “Yes @harbhajan_singh on current form and his skills this Southern Star, @IamSanjuSamson can bat even on Moon’s South Pole!!! I wonder if they had space on Vikram to carry this marvel of a batsman. Well done Sanju on scoring 91 off 48 balls against South Africa A side.
