One has witnessed Wriddhiman Saha‘s brilliance behind the stumps in Tests and T20s. His wicketkeeping skills are currently unmatched by any other keeper in India. When it comes to batting, Saha is known for his gritty knocks, especially in Tests. In a rarity, Saha went on to score a brisk 20-ball 102. His knock was reminiscence of his 2014 IPL final ton for Kings XI Punjab. His 20-ball ton came in a CAB club match against BNR at Kalighat, Mohun Bagan managed just 151 at the loss of 7 wickets.

While chasing, Saha single-handedly took his side home with an unbeaten 102. His knock comprised of 14 sixes and 4 fours at a astounding strike rate of 510. His knock becomes all the more crucial as he is returning from a hamstring injury.

In IPL 2014 final, it was Saha’s unbeaten 55-ball 115 that took Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) to 199 for 4. That knock saw him slamming 10 fours and 4 sixes. He became the first and only cricketer to score a century in the final. Dating to present day, Saha’s century has come in a timely fashion, especially with IPL round the horizon.

After his stint with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and KXIP, Saha will be seen playing under David Warner for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in IPL 11.
