Opening innings is big plus for me: Wriddhiman


Chandigarh, Apr 18 (PTI) Test specialist Wriddhiman Saha reckons that opening the batting for the Sunrisers Hyderabad within the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been a big certain for him.

Saha has previous opened the batting for Kings XI Punjab or even scored 100 in a shedding motive right through the 2013 IPL ultimate in opposition to Kolkata Knight Riders.

“I like to play my natural game. The coach (Tom Moody) and captain (Kane Williamson) have backed me on this and I have got opportunity to open the innings, which is a plus point. They have told me to play with freedom and play my natural shots,” Saha advised PTI right here.

Saha has thus far scored 51 runs in 3 video games with rankings of five, 22 and 24 respectively.

Asked if he would proceed opening the innings, Saha answered:”This depends on team management. If I do well as an opener, I will be entrusted to take up the responsibility but if I don’t come up to their expectations, then they may think of other options. But I want to even better my performance.”

Saha used to be beneficiant in his reward for new skipper Williamson.

“Kane is always open to suggestions from teammates during the game. He gives us freedom and he remains very relaxed, calm and brings positive vibes. Under him, our team bonding is very good”.

Saha believes that even copybook pictures can fetch him runs and there is no want to play unconventional pictures.

“I prefer to hit over the circle when opportunity comes (during the Powerplay overs). I play my regular cricketing shots and I have not come up with any unconventional stroke,” the Bengal stumper added.

Saha admitted that forged display from the bowling unit has eased the force at the batsmen as they’ve no longer needed to chase any stiff overall thus far.

“Apart from the bowlers who are in the playing XI, we have fantastic bench strength. Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar), Rashid Khan, Siddarth (Kaul), Shakib (Al Hasan), Billy Stanlake have been bowling well and have helped restrict the opposition to totals in the 150 region,” he stated.

About IPL, which is over a decade-old , Saha stated, “IPL is a great platform for any player, more so for budding players, it is such a platform where they get opportunity to rub shoulders with senior players from around the globe, which helps them to further improve their game.”

Saha, who has performed 32 Tests for India, published that he has been keen on the shorter structure of the sport because the starting. He lately hit 14 sixes en path a 20-ball hundred right through a T20 inter-club sport in Kolkata.

“I always liked playing T20 from the start and enjoy this format. Earlier on, in KXIP, I got few opportunities to play the shorter format of the game. I also got a chance to play the Tests but whatever opportunity you get, you have to perform and my aim is to contribute and help my team win,” he stated
