In addition, he bailed them out with 61-run undefeated innings. During a conversation on Star Sports, he praised Wriddhiman Saha’s knock. Chopra noted that the wicketkeeper-batter had placed the ball in the hands of the selectors.
“This knock is amazing from two or three angles. There are question marks, people are asking who will play the next match, who will go to South Africa, so he said he will do whatever he can do best and the headache is yours. Even if this is my last Test, I will go away smiling and happy, and that Wriddhiman Saha is brave,” Aakash Chopra said.
Furthermore, Aakash Chopra added that Wriddhiman Saha’s knock was reminiscent. In Cheteshwar Pujara’s career-saving effort in the second innings of the Headingley Test against England.
India vs New Zealand 2021: “The questions were being asked and he knew he is 37-year-old. It reminded me slightly of Pujara’s 91-run knock in Leeds, that your career is hanging by a thin thread,” Chopra said.
Lastly, Wriddhiman Saha has already been relegated to the backup by Rishabh Pant’s dynamic performances. It is over the last few months. With Srikar Bharat showing his prowess behind the wickets in New Zealand’s first innings. And then the veteran keeper’s place in the Indian squad had also become questionable. Wriddhiman Saha’s knock, according to Irfan Pathan. He was vital on multiple levels.
“It shows the mindset of this batter. He had come with perfect preparation. There was a lot of pressure on him, to save his spot, there were a lot of questions going to be asked, Srikar Bharat had already kept amazingly well. So you had to save your team here but also think about your career,” Aakash Chopra said.
