Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly believes that the Indian Test wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha has been India’s best glovesman in the last five to 10 years. While Saha is currently fighting to recover his international level fitness, Ganguly wants him to see back in action as soon as possible.

The former Indian skipper and the present limited-overs Indian wicketkeeper MS Dhoni is still known one of the best ever wicketkeepers in world cricket history. However, Ganguly believes Saha has been India’s best wicketkeeper in the last five to 10 years.

Ganguly recently told PTI about Saha, “He’s out of the team for about a year now but I think in the last five to 10 years, he has been India’s best glovesman. Hope he recovers soon. Injury is not in your hands. Wicketkeeper has to dive and he got injured while diving. It takes a certain time to recover. The faster he recovers, the better it is.”

In recent years, Saha has been the best wicketkeeper in India’s Test cricket. However, this year, Saha is running through a tough period as he has faced several injuries and these have affected his international career hugely. While he had a hamstring injury during the South Africa tour early in this year, he picked a thumb injury during the IPL 2018 and later he faced a serious shoulder injury that needed a surgery, which he did in Manchester.

Now, the 34-year-old Indian Test wicketkeeper is working very hard to regain his fitness. Recently, he told that he is feeling much better and looking to return to the cricket in the mid-December or at the end of the year.

According to NDTV Sports, Saha told, “I am much better than before. I expect to make a comeback by mid-December or by the end of the year. The rehabilitation is going on keeping that in mind. So hopefully, if things go to plan I will make a comeback by that time. I have started knocking at the nets and taking throw-downs but I am not match fit yet.”
