Wriddhiman Saha was praised by Dinesh Karthik for his commitment. Also notable is his unbeaten 61 against New Zealand in Kanpur. Karthik expressed his pleasure at seeing “someone with old legs” demonstrating how it’s done. When India was in trouble, Wriddhiman came in to bat. With a 152-point margin, the score is 103-6. Karthik didn’t take the field at all on Saturday.
Due to a neck sprain, batted alongside Shreyas Iyer and Axar Patel to take the total to 234-7. Also, his 126-ball innings included four boundaries and a six against Will Somerville. On the episode ‘Cricbuzz Chatter,’ Dinesh Karthik said he appreciated the knock even more. Just because with the emergence of KS Bharat. And Saha was under pressure to maintain his spot on the team.
Dinesh Karthik statements:
“What I like about him is that he was again having his back against the wall in this Test. This could have easily been one of his last Test innings because there would have been a lot of pressure to bring Srikar Bharat for the next Test.
“But again I was just happy to see Wriddhiman Saha bat because he’s a solid batter, he’s really good, he’s got a bit of dogfight in him, you know, he fought his way through a stiff neck, changed his stance up, batted differently to what he’s used to but delivered.
“It’s good to see somebody with old legs coming and pushing people and showing how it can be done.”
Moreover, Wriddhiman Saha’s half-century was his first in over four years. Overshadowed by the young Rishabh Pant, Saha hasn’t played for India. Since the Adelaide Test in Australia last year, which made his comeback even more special. And then Simon Doull spoke during the same interaction. Also labeled Wriddhiman Saha a “street fighter” who does the job when India needs him the most.
