  • Wriddhiman Saha has made domestic cricket his primary focus
  • Saha has been left out of India’s squad for two consecutive Test rounds and is unlikely to be chosen in the future
  • Saha recently parted ways with Bengal
West Bengal and Gujarat Titans wicketkeeper striker Wriddhiman Saha has been on a rollercoaster ride in recent months. Saha, who recently became IPL champion with the Gujarat Titans, was left out of India’s test squad in March, went through a textual controversy with journalist Boria Majumdar and parted ways with his Bengal national team.
With Saha not named in the test squad for the final test against England, the team management may have made their intentions clear regarding the veteran glover’s future. The 37-year-old is now turning his attention to domestic cricket and the Indian Premier League after the snub.

Talk to sportskeeda much the same, Saha said: “Since it has been officially clarified by the management of the Indian team that I will not be chosen, my main focus will be domestic cricket – if and when I play – then well sure the IPL.”

However, Saha has ruled out the possibility of playing county cricket saying he already doesn’t have much time with his family lately so he wants to do it for a bit.

Saha recently parted ways with his Bengal national team and has yet to decide which state he wants to play in the next phase of his career. Saha’s wife Romi had slammed the Bengal Cricket Association for doubting Saha’s commitment and said the wicketkeeper striker was injured by the same and hence left his side of the state.

For Saha, it wasn’t all bleak as after being bought out by a new franchise, the goalie-beater became IPL champion with the Gujarat Titans. After not playing the first few games, Saha was slotted into the lineup as an opener and he didn’t disappoint as he showed off his offensive prowess with the bat.

Speaking more about his journey with the Titans, Saha praised skipper Hardik Pandya and how he embraced a different role with bat and ball taking on more responsibility in the lead.

“Whenever you are captain, how the responsibility for the team and the thirst to contribute increases, he showed exactly that. He was beating at No. 6 or No. 7 Mumbai Indians (MI), only getting only three to four overs at most, and so had to start playing shots immediately after he came in. But when he got here, he had to change his game to hit at No. 4 and ended up scoring nearly 500 runs. it’s his bowling. It’s not an easy task at all,” added Saha.
