Veteran Indian batter Wriddhiman Saha has finally opened up on his future plan as an Indian domestic cricketer. He has confirmed that he won’t play for Bengal in the current edition even after being selected in the squad for the knockout stage. And, he also said that he is in talks with multiple associations but he hasn’t finalised his destination yet as well. The Cricket Association of Bengal tried its level best through president Avishek Dalmiya and head coach Arun Lal but they failed to convince the veteran batter. He was miffed with the comments made by a CAB official questioning his commitment to Bengal cricket last year as well.

“For me, too, it is a very sad feeling that I have to go through something like this after playing for Bengal for so long. It is disappointing that people make such comments and question your integrity. As a player, I had never faced such a thing in the past, but now that it has happened, even I need to (move on),” Wriddhiman Saha told Sportstar.

However, he has represented Bengal in 122 first-class matches and 102 List A games. He said that he has already conveyed his decision of not playing for Bengal anymore to the CAB president but he will meet him to complete the formation and also take the NOC as well.

“Since I had made up my mind that I won’t play for Bengal, I had informed (the Cricket Association of Bengal president Avishek Dalmiya) over phone. But I will meet him in person and finalise the formalities,” Saha added. “I have spoken to a lot of people, but no decision has been taken yet. There is still time left for next season…”

However,he has played a crucial role at the top of the order for Gujarat Titans, who won IPL 2022 on their debut season as well. “I just went to the IPL to contribute to Gujarat Titans and help them win. I am glad that we won the title, but I am not thinking too much about what will happen next or what should have happened. My job was to perform and I just did that,” Wriddhiman Saha concluded.
