Wriddhiman Saha Biography & Wiki, Height, Weight, Age, Birth date
Wriddhiman Saha (born 24 October 1984) is an Indian cricketer. Saha has played International cricket for India and represents Bengal in India domestic cricket and the Kings XI Punjab in Indian Premier League. He is also the first and only cricketer to score a century in the Indian Premier League final.
In 2017, Saha became the first Indian wicket-keeper to score centuries in home as well as outside Asia. Wriddhiman Saha is India’s fourth-highest run-scorer this home season.
Saha made his Test debut in February 2010 – on that occasion as a specialist batsman. When he got a permanent place in the Indian Test XI as a wicket-keeper, there were arguments that his batting wasn’t quite cut out for Tests, despite a batting average of 44.48 in first-class cricket. The questions on Saha’s abilities emerged in the backdrop of him replacing the long-serving MS Dhoni, who had scored nearly 5000 runs in Test cricket at an average nearly 40. But in the last nine months, the keeper from Bengal has justified that he is not only an excellent wicket-keeper, but also a batsman who can score runs even at the Test cricket grade. It might not be that obvious, but in the 13 Test matches that Saha has been part of (starting the tour of West Indies in July 2016), his aggregate of 615 runs is the fourth highest in the Indian team; only Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane have scored more runs than Saha in those 13 Tests. Point to be noted is that Saha has accumulated those runs while generally batting at number seven or eight.
More interestingly, in this home season, only two Indian batsman – Kohli (5) and Pujara (4) – have scored more hundreds than Saha. But in the context of the match situations, two of Saha’s three Test centuries could be labelled priceless. Saha scored his maiden Test century at St. Lucia on the tour of the Caribbean; on that occasion, India, having been put in to bat, were reeling at 126-5 with the cream of the batting back in the pavilion. But Saha combined with Ashwin, and the pair rescued India to a competitive first-innings total. India went on to win the Test quite convincingly. The 32-year-old has only grown in confidence since. He has since added two more centuries to his kitty and his batting average has more than doubled. Saha’s second hundred came when the Indian batsmen had the opportunity to make merry on some fabulous batting conditions against Bangladesh; Saha made a busy-looking 106 – one of three centuries in that Indian innings.
Most recently, Saha’s third hundred came at a very crucial juncture in the match; Australia had scored 451 batting first and India were six wickets down still 123 runs in deficit. Saha combined with Pujara; the pair added 199 runs and not only took India past Australia’s first innings score, but well beyond. Saha, The Keeper Saha has played 23 Tests as India’s designated wicket-keeper, and his numbers on the batting front compare favourably to some of India’s previous wicket-keepers. In terms of runs, only Farokh Engineer (who also opened the innings), MS Dhoni and Nayan Mongia had scored more.
