Indian Test wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha recently opened up on his wish to play in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. The Bengal cricketer said that he had been pushing himself hard to play in the most coveted cricket tournament and also revealed that his wife, Romi Saha, also wished to see him play in the World Cup.
According to a PTI reports, Saha, who addressed a press conference during a promotional event on Tuesday, September 12, said, “My wife badly wants me to play in the World Cup. She insists that I must push harder to achieve that. I am also trying, but ultimately the decision lies with the selectors.”
“My preparation is always aimed at bettering my performance. The rest depends on the selection committee. I don’t perform to just play ODIs. Those who are saying (good things about my keeping) know better. Whatever I have learnt, I am trying to execute,” he added.
After Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s retirement from the Test format, Wriddhiman Saha has evolved as the go-to Indian wicket-keeper in the whites. He had recently played in the Test series against Sri Lanka which India won by 3-0. Now, the men in blue are all set to take on Australia in a five-match ODI and three-match T20Is bilateral series. Saha said that he felt Team India would dominate again.
Beating India in India will always be tough. Australia has done well last time but I will put India ahead. India’s bench strength is very strong. The team is preparing for the 2019 World Cup. That’s why the rotation of players is happening. India has been performing well with all sets of players which is a good sign
Saha, after his stint on the Sri Lankan tour, had politely played down the compliments that were showered on him, including Sourav Ganguly’s reported opinion that the Bengal stumper could replace Dhoni in limited overs cricket in future.
