“Won’t play for Bengal because my integrity was questioned,” Wriddhiman Saha reveals the reason for leaving Bengal cricket team

Wriddhiman Saha has recently been in the news for various on and off field reasons

The Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha has revealed that he has decided not to play for Bengal in the Indian domestic cricket anymore because his integrity was questioned and he can’t play for an association which puts a question mark on his integrity itself.


Wriddhiman Saha, while talking to Sportstar, did not reveal who actually questioned his integrity and what is the whole story behind him falling out with his long time association, which is Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), but he said that he has already conveyed to the CAB chairman Abhishek Dalmiya over phone that he won’t be playing for Bengal and he will tell him in person too.

Saha, if he has to play for any other state association in the Indian domestic circuit, will need a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from CAB and the veteran wicketkeeper said he would soon have a meeting with the CAB chairman and whatever paper work has to be done for him to be released by the association would be done during that meeting.


Wriddhiman Saha has recently won the IPL trophy with Gujarat Titans

Wriddhiman Saha recently had a great IPL season with the new IPL franchise Gujarat Titans where he didn’t just win the trophy, he actually scored more than 300 runs for the Titans, opening the batting for them with the young Indian sensation Shubman Gill.

Although Saha’s chances of playing for India are not very high anymore as he has been clearly conveyed by the Indian head coach Rahul Dravid that the Indian team management is looking to groom KS Bharat as the back up wicketkeeper of the test team, Saha still intends to continue playing domestic cricket and IPL.

Saha was in the news for quite a few weeks before the IPL as he had posted a screenshot of him being talked to in a threatening tone by an Indian journalist for an interview. The BCCI later investigated the matter and banned the journalist.



I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
