Wriddhiman Saha continued his scintillating Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 form to the semi-finals of the J.C. Mukherjee T-20 tournament. This time the wicket-keeper batsman went one better and plundered an unbeaten 169 off a mere 74 deliveries for his club side Mohun Bagan.Just a week ago, Saha had scored a breathtaking 115 in the IPL 7 final for his side Kings XI Punjab. Saha’s century though, went in vain Punjab narrowly lost out to Kolkata Knight Riders.
Saha was looking forward to play in the J.C.Mukherjee trophy as he said a while back in being involved in multiple tournaments helped him grow immensely as a cricketer.
This knock further illustrates Saha’s big-hitting potential and how far the 29-year old stumper had come in his career as a batsman. Especially, his big-hitting abilities, which were in full effect during the IPL final. Saha had smashed Sunil Narine for four out of the eight sixes.
