WTC Final: Veteran Wicket-Keeper Batter Wriddhiman Saha’s Furious Reaction After Not Getting Place In The WTC Squad

The Indian team will play the final match of the World Test Championship (WTC Final-2023) against Australia in London from June 7.

Rohit Sharma has been made the captain of the Indian team for this prestigious match. Experienced Ajinkya Rahane has also been included in the team in place of injured Shreyas Iyer. Not only Iyer, but the Indian wicketkeeper, Rishabh Pant, is also injured and out of the WTC final, and talks were also going around to select experienced Wridhiman Saha in place of Pant for the WTC final as KS Bharat hasn’t impressed a lot as a wicketkeeper during Australia series. This debate heated further when Rahane got a chance because of his experience, but Saha wasn’t.

Currently, Saha is playing for Gujrat Titans and performing well for his team. His team is placed at the 3rd spot in the points table with 10 points.

When Saha was asked if he is also eyeing a return to the national team after Rahane was selected for the World Test Championship title match, he said, “His (Rahane) name can be considered because he has done well, my focus is only on doing well for Gujarat Titans.”

The 38-year-old wicket-keeper batsman played his last Test match for India in December 2021. The team management then told him his name would no longer be considered.

After this, Saha expressed his displeasure in the media, due to which his relationship with the then Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly deteriorated. Even at the domestic level, he moved to Tripura after representing Bengal for more than 15 years. He is also the mentor of the team along with the player.

Saha said on the eve of the match against Kolkata Knight Riders, “Kolkata is my home. I have played many matches on this ground. Right now, I am here representing another team. Motera (Ahmedabad) is my home ground in IPL. This is a different situation for me.”
