THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Soon-to-be senior Indian international cricketer Sanju V Samson was felicitated by the Federation of Residents’ Association Thiruvananthapuram (FRAT) here the other day.
The 19-year-old wicket keeper-batsman, who has been called up to the 17-strong Indian team for five one-day internationals and a one-off twenty20 match in the England tour, was honoured by FRAT at his residence at Vizhinjam here.
