On Saturday, Team India announced the Test series against Sri Lanka. Rohit Sharma has been made the new captain of the team. At the same time, 4 senior players have been discharged from the team. Ishant Sharma, wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane. These four experienced players will not be part of the team in the series.
Now Wriddhiman Saha has made a big disclosure about the team management. He has said that coach Rahul Dravid had asked him to retire. Because now they will not be considered for selection. At the same time, he has accused Sourav Ganguly of making false promises.
Due to team management, he also took back his name from Ranji.
Saha told PTI, ‘I am not participating in the Ranji Trophy this year because I have been told that my name will no longer be considered for Team India. Coach Dravid has advised me to retire.
Ganguly also targeted
Saha has also targeted former India captain and BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. According to Saha, Ganguly had assured him that he should not worry about his place in Team India. When Saha scored an unbeaten 61 in the Test match against New Zealand in Kanpur, taking pain medicine, Dada had also congratulated him by sending a message.
According to Saha, Ganguly told him that as long as he is the president of the BCCI, he does not need to worry about anything. Saha’s confidence had increased a lot after hearing such a talk from the board president, but now Saha says that he is no longer able to understand how everything has changed so quickly. A false promise was made to him.
KS Bharat in place of Saha
Wriddhiman Saha is running out of playing XI for the South Africa series. He did not get a chance to play a single match in the 3-match Test series played in South Africa. In place of Saha, Rishabh Pant continued to take care of the responsibility of keeping in the team. Now young KS Bharat has been made part of the team in place of Saha in the series against Sri Lanka.
Bharat has been doing well in domestic cricket for a long time and can play anywhere in the batting order. Saha last played for Team India against New Zealand.
