Wriddhiman Saha

On Friday, Indian wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha said that he certainly not found to former head coach Anil Kumble “strict” and adding that current coach Ravi Shastri always support them to go out there.

Kumble resigned as a head coach from Indian men’s cricket team before the West Indies tour after Captain Virat Kohli had lifted up about his style of coaching. Kumble wrote in his resignation letter that their relationship becomes “untenable.”

Before arriving from Sri Lanka Saha said to reporters, “I did not feel that way. As a coach, he has to be strict in some way or the other. Some have felt he is strict, some have not. I have never felt that way under Anil bhai.”

When asked about differences between the two coaches, Saha said “Anil bhai always wanted us to score 400, 500, 600 and the opponent will be all out by 150-200. That is not always possible. Ravi bhai always tells us to go out there hit the opponent out of the park. This is the only difference I could see. Rest both were positive all the time.”

Talking about the imperious form Saha said on losing at Galle two years back. “We lost the Galle Test. Then all the players had a meeting and we are maintaining the momentum from there. It has helped us recharge our batteries. We stuck to a plan and have been executing it so far.”

The partnership between pace bowler Mohammed Shami and praised by Shastri, Saha said “It’s great that Shami is continuing his aggression after coming back from injury. It is good for him and the team. He always creates a wicket taking the opportunity. He swings the ball and gets the outside edge of the batsman. I take the catch.”

“I have played and trained day in and day out in the sun and not once have I regretted the fact that I have tanned or lost a couple of shades. It is simply because I love what I do and I have been able to achieve certain things only because I have spent hours outdoor. I come from Chennai, probably one of the hottest places in our country and I have gladly spent most of my adult life in the cricket ground.”
