Bio

Wriddhiman Saha launched himself on to the cricket scene with a century in his Ranji Trophy debut in 2007 and was considered a wicketkeeper and batsman with plenty of potential. 

His Test debut came when he was drafted in last-minute as a batsman to replace an injured Rohit Sharma after Sharma injured himself of the morning of a match against South Africa in 2010.

He scored 36 in the second innings of that Test but was consigned to the sidelines after Sharma returned and did not make another Test appearance two years.

Saha’s one-day international career has been similarly stop-start but he was a strong player in the Indian Premier League for Kings XI Punjab in 2014, securing his place as a vital part of the team’s line-up. 

In the IPL final against Kolkata Knight Riders he became the first player to score a century in an IPL final after making an unbeaten 115 from 55 balls.
