Ready to bat wherever with Shikhar Dhawan, David Warner in SRH batting lineup: Wriddhiman Saha

As reported by DNA India, Wriddhiman Saha spoke about his batting preference, and how it takes a back seat in front of two well-abled openers, Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner. The 33-year-old said,

“I prefer batting at the top but I have kept rotating in terms of my batting position. With SRH, I will probably bat in the lower middle order. We have great openers (Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner) so they will do well. I am ready to bat anywhere for the team.”

“I was playing in Mohali and I know the wicket there. Now I will be playing for Hyderabad, so I will have to adjust to the wicket. As far as gelling with the players is concerned, it won’t be a problem. Everybody is familiar at this level.”

On India’s upcoming England tour

Wriddhiman Saha IPL 2018 would be an exciting chapter to see, especially with the 33-year-old’s impressive performance in the recently held South Africa Test series. However, Saha said that the England tour which was scheduled for Team India for later this year would be a tough challenge, and that Team India would be looking to get acclimated to the overseas conditions by visiting ahead of time. He said,

“England will be tough. We have to play well. It will help if we can go there early. In England first is T20 and one-dayers. We are ready to go one month in advance as well for the Tests.”

Saha also added, that it would be difficult to keep wickets against the moving ball in England. He said,

“I have never played in England for India. I have played with the India A team there. It is challenging to keep wickets there as the ball moves quite a lot. There is dampness also.”

India will play a five-match Test series in England starting from August 1, which would be preceded by T20I and ODI series as well. To read Cricket latest news, live cricket news or Cricket News India, tune in to Rooter News for your daily fix.
