Wridhiman Saha
(Indian Cricketer)

The wicketkeeper hailing from Bengal is known to be one of the best wicketkeepers the country has had when it comes to technique. Saha has made a tremendous effort in the recent years to help himself be relevant in all formats of cricket. The player is the first choice wicketkeeper in the Test format for India, and post the inevitable MS Dhoni’s retirement, it is expected he will be jostling for the same slot in the limited overs format. Furthermore, Saha has also evolved to become an attacking batsman who can help put pressure on opposition bowlers.
