Sanju Samson debuted for the Kerala Ranji team in his first-class cricket match against Vidarbha on 3 November 2011 at the age of 17. He quickly left an impression by achieving two centuries and a half-century in his first five matches the following season.

The Ranji Trophy 2013-14 was a significant season for Samson. In the first match, Assam scored 323 runs. Samson then scored 211, leading Kerala with a 39-run advantage. He hit 23 fours and 5 sixes to achieve his first double century in Ranji Trophy. After two matches, he was the top scorer with 377 runs at an average of 188.5. Throughout six matches, he scored a total of 530 runs for Kerala with an average of 58.88.

Samson reached his peak in 2019-20 by scoring a double-century in a Vijay Hazare match against Goa. The Kerala player hit an unbeaten 212 off 129 balls, setting a new record for wicket-keeper batsmen in List A cricket. He surpassed Abid Ali’s record of 208 runs from Pakistan’s one-day competition in 2018.
