Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh believes that Wriddhiman Saha is still Team India’s second-best choice wicketkeeper after Rishabh Pant and says that despite several other talented youngsters such as KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan, he should be given more opportunities ahead of the others.
Harbhajan said that Saha is a ‘safe keeper and has very good hands’ and also added that Saha has been with the team for a long time.
“It is a troublesome decision however in the event that I need to decide, I will stay with Wriddhiman Saha. He is a very safe keeper and has very good hands. Rishabh Pant has grown in stature, not only as a batsman but as a keeper as well and will keep improving as he keeps on playing.”
“I feel for quite a while Wriddhiman Saha should be kept alongside the group. I concur he is 35 years of age however such a wellness he has, I feel he is still better compared to the vast majority of the adolescents. It is acceptable that we have many choices – we have KL Rahul and the strong Ishan Kishan,” Harbhajan said on Star Sports organization.
Pant provides a better balance to team, says Harbhajan.
At the point when called attention to that with Pant in the playing XI, Group India has frequently had the option to play five bowlers, however with Saha playing that is not been the situation, the off-spinner added that in such a situation, Ishan Kishan can likewise be prepared for the Team India role.
“On the off chance that you observe intently, Rishabh Pant gives the equilibrium to the group which permits you to play five bowlers since he is a legitimate batsman. In any case, when you look towards Wriddhi, the captain is not that confident of playing five bowlers.
“If the thinking is like that, then I feel Ishan Kishan can be a very good choice because he is a strong batsman and a match-winner. He is also a similar kind of player who plays shots and keeps well also,” Harbhajan added.
