The Indian Team will play Australia in the second edition of the World Test Championship finals to be played at Kennington Oval, London from 7th June onwards.
Wriddhiman Saha is having a great season with the gloves for Gujarat Titans in IPL 2023. He looked brilliant during the last 2 matches against Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants. With the likes of Pant and KL Rahul ruled out of the tournament due to injuries, KS Bharat has less experience in keeping in England conditions.
The Indian Cricket Team is struggling with injuries now and Rahane has been recalled into the squad due to exploits in IPL 2023 and domestic season.
Here we look at the 3 reasons why Wriddhiman Saha should be recalled into the Squad for WTC finals.
- Best Wicketkeeper in the country
Wriddhiman Saha is the best wicketkeeper in India. Saha has a total of 40 Test matches and has the experience of keeping in different conditions, especially on tough Indian wickets.
Saha has done brilliantly in IPL 2023 with the gloves and helped Gujarat Titans save some vital runs. With the conditions at Oval likely to help the seamers then Saha could be an ideal choice as he will know the bowling of Indian pacers as he featured in the Indian squad previously.
- Aggressive batting
Wriddhiman Saha can provide counter-attacking batting for Team India lower down the order. He can put enough pressure on the opponent bowlers. With Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and other top-quality Australian bowlers in the mix, Saha could be an ideal choice to put enough pressure on with valuable contributions lower down the order.
He has shown tremendous success for Gujarat Titans this season putting pressure on the opponent bowlers with his aggressive intent and keep pressure.
Saha has done very in the past for Team India to contribute and help them to keep the momentum going. KS Bharat got chances during the home series against Australia but failed to contribute decent runs.
Wriddhiman Saha has the experience of playing in England conditions. He has the ability to keep well against India’s bowlers in various conditions. With conditions in June expected to help the seam bowlers then, Saha could be an ideal choice to keep against the likes of Shami, and Siraj.
KS Bharat could not grab easy chances during the Test series against Australia. The experience of Saha will be needed and would hope to take some lovely catches helping Team India do wonders to win the first-ever title after 2013.
