Bangalore: Indian cricket's rising star Sanju Samson's coach Biju George feels that his ward possesses the grit of Rahul Dravid as well as the flair of AB de Villiers which will make him a special player for India in the coming days.
"Sanju is a combination of Dravid and AB as he is a package of flamboyance and dogged determination. He is as flamboyant and as determined as Dravid is," George said.
The Kerala youngster has earned his maiden call-up in the senior national side for the five-match ODI series in England. (Also read: Samson extremely happy to join Indian team in England)
