India’s Test wicketkeeper keeper Wriddhiman Saha said that he is not thinking about Indian Premier League right now.

Wriddhiman Saha missed last two tests against South Africa due to a hamstring injury.

Now he is back to full fitness and is busy with trying to gain his strength.

On being asked about his expectations from the IPL, he said, “I am not thinking about the Indian Premier League at the moment. I am focussing on getting fully fit and match  ready.”

‘I felt really bad that I could not play tests for India and I had to come back after the first test. But, injuries are part of the game and I am happy with team’s success,’ he added.

Saha was bought by IPL 2016 winners Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs. 5 crores this year. Sunrisers would be taking on Rajasthan Royals on 9th April in Hyderabad.

‘There is time and I will think about IPL only after joining the team,’ Saha asserted.

In the first Test against South Africa, the 33-year old created a record of snaffling 10 catches in a single Test leaving MS Dhoni behind, who held the record of 9 catches earlier.

Saha was talking to the reporters on the sidelines of his local team Shyambazar club’s centenary celebrations at the Eden Gardens where he played for his office outfit on Tuesday.

Talking about the Nidahas Trophy Twenty20 International tri-series going on in Srilanka, Wriddhiman said, “India is a strong team and I hope that they would do well in the series.”
