Indian cricketer Wriddhiman Saha made his Test debut for India in 2010. However, he became a regular wicketkeeper of the Indian Test line-up only after MS Dhoni retired from the format in late 2014. Even though the 35-year-old Saha did not feature in the Indian playing XI in New Zealand, the cricketer is very highly rated by captain Virat Kohli for his work behind the stumps.
Amid the coronavirus-induced India lockdown, Wriddhiman Saha seems to have found a way to hone his wicketkeeping skills even further. On Monday, the seasoned campaigner took to Twitter and shared a 45-second video of himself throwing two balls towards the wall and taking low catches. In the caption, Wriddhiman Saha credited the Indian fielding coach R. Sridhar for the nomination when the latter had suggested the same practice technique earlier.
Wriddhiman Saha has been representing Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in IPL ever since he joined the franchise in the 2018 edition. During the IPL 2020 trading and transfer window, the cricketer was retained by SRH for ₹1.2 crore (US$168,240) for the much-awaited IPL 2020 season. While the IPL 2020 was intended to launch on March 29, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) indefinitely postponed the tournament in wake of the coronavirus crisis.
Additionally, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly recently stated that there are no immediate plans to stage any cricketing activities in the country at the moment.
