Gujarat Titans
Gujarat Titans' Wriddhiman Saha is in fine form this IPL season.

Wriddhiman Saha, India’s wicketkeeper-batter, referred to the Motera Stadium as his new “home ground” on Monday, having spent the majority of his career at the Eden Garden.

When Wriddhiman Saha termed the Motera Stadium his new “home field,” the Indian wicketkeeper-frustration batsman and disappointment were evident. After an altercation with the establishment, the Gujarat Titans gloveman will not play for the state of Gujarat again. He made his Ranji debut here in 2007 and scored a century.

Due to concerns about his dedication to the Bengal state Ranji team, Saha is looking to leave domestic Bengal cricket.

“In this tournament, I’m representing Gujarat, thus my home ground is Motera Stadium. As a former KKR employee, Eden is no longer my place of residence “Ahead of their IPL Qualifier One match against the Rajasthan Royals, Saha said in a virtual media session.

Despite the fact that he referred to Motera as his home field, no IPL matches have been held in Ahmedabad thus far.

After a question on whether he would return to the Eden Gardens, the 37-year-old replied, “I can’t answer the second part of your question.” It’s not like I haven’t played here before, but this is my first time playing an away game,” Saha explained.

He was at odds with the Cricket Association of Bengal because they named him in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinals against Jharkhand without his permission.

After withdrawing from the Ranji league stage, CAB assistant secretary Debabrata Das questioned Saha’s devotion.

When Saha was going through “difficult times,” he was not supported by his state’s athletic organization. In order to leave Bengal, he has requested verbally that CAB issue him a no-objection certificate (NOC).

Team selection isn’t anything I’m thinking about: Saha

With 312 runs from nine matches in the IPL, including three half-centuries, Saha is currently on a roll with the bat.

Head coach Rahul Dravid explained to him that they were searching for another younger second keeper to pair with Rishabh Pant in the Indian Test team, and as a result, he was not selected.

Sourav Ganguly and Ravindra Dravid were the targets of an angry Saha’s wrath.

Saha’s exclusion from the squad for the series finale against England at Edgbaston in June was therefore no surprise.

Despite being repeatedly passed over for selection to the Indian national team, Saha has stated that he no longer cares about that aspect of his career.

“For me, teamwork is more important than individual success. I’m not thinking about that in terms of (India squad) selection because we’re here for Qualifier One. We’re all here to see the game, “On the eve of their IPL Qualifier One against the Rajasthan Royals at Eden Gardens, Saha stated.

“Every match I play, I aim to contribute to the team’s batting and help them reach the finish line. A personal milestone of 50 or 100 is always a nice bonus as my first priority.”

Saha enjoys playing at the top of the order.

Saha stated he enjoys batting at the top because of his excellent form.

“The position I’ve been offered here is the perfect fit for me. In the opening six overs, I want to go all out and take a few risks “he stated.

“In the past, I’ve competed in the qualification and the IPL final. This is a match, and I’m well aware of the circumstances. We have no plans to do anything additional “Then, he added.
