Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir is elated with the selection of Sanju Samson for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Bangladesh and has asked the wicketkeeper-batsman to grab the "long overdue" opportunity with both hands.

Gambhir has been, for long, advocating for the selection of the Kerala batsman into the national squad.

Samson's name has been doing the rounds in recent times and with the World T20 up next year, the team management as well as the selectors are looking to keep options open as Rishabh Pant is yet to cement his place in the team in the limited-overs format.

The fact that Samson stole the headlines with a brilliant double century against Goa in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy also helped his case.

Gambhir had tweeted after Samson's 212-run knock against Goa in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Samson has represented India in one T20I game against Zimbabwe in Harare in 2015. The 24-year-old had scored 19 runs in the match which the Men in Blue had lost by 10 runs, chasing 146 on July 19.

The three-match series between India and Bangladesh begins on November 3 and will be followed by a two-Test series which starts on November 14.
