He endured a strictly average time in the IPL, with the lack of swing on Indian pitches making him cannon fodder at his pace which generally is the late 120s or early 130s. That said, he did have a game where he produced a hat-trick and has shown promise to be of use, except that it could be as a batting all-rounder.
Sam is a clean striker of the ball and in T20, it’s this attribute of his that will hold him in better stead while his bowling could be more of a bonus. CSK picked him at the 2020 IPL auctions and although he doesn’t seem like a sure starter at this point. Sam is definitely a handy addition to the squad.
