Wriddhiman Saha is looking to join a new team after recent controversy with Bengal

Wicketkeeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha has been in the news recently after his controversy with the Cricket Association of Bengal got into the hands of the media. Saha recently played the 15 th season of The Indian Premier League for the new franchise Gujarat Titans. Initially he didn’t get a spot in the playing 11 but later on Gujarat included him. Saha though was away from international cricket for a long time was seen in a good touch for Gujarat Titans. In quite a few matches his quick starts escalated the confidence of the batsmen to follow.

But recently the seasoned campaigner has been in talks about his future plans and has also made it very clear that he is not going to represent Bengal in domestic cricket anymore.

The Bengal born cricketer had played for Bengal all these years. Recently in the semi final of the Ranji trophy the wicket keeper was picked in the squad but he opted not to play for the state. Saha has been a part of the Bengal cricket team for almost 15 years but the comments from an official of CAB made him take this harsh call. Post the comments, Saha decided to opt out of the Ranji Trophy knock-outs and is looking to represent some other state in domestic cricket.The CAB official questioned the cricketer’s integrity and commitment to Bengal cricket which hurt Wriddhiman Saha deeply.

Saha has been known for his agile wicket keeping behind the stumps. He was a main part of the Indian Cricket team for a long time since Dhoni retired but was dropped from the squad as Rishabh Pant replaced him.

“For me, too, it is a very sad feeling that I have to go through something like this after playing for Bengal for so long. It is disappointing that people make such comments and question your integrity. As a player, I had never faced such a thing in the past, but now that it has happened, I need to move on,” Wriddhiman Sahan told Sportstar.

The veteran has featured in 122 first class matches and 102 list A matches for Bengal.
