I’m pushing hard for a place in 2019 WC team: Saha

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Kolkata: Mahendra Singh Dhoni might be firmly occupying the wicketkeeper's slot in ODIs but India's Test glovesman Wriddhiman Saha today said he has not given up on his World Cup dreams and is pushing hard to play in the 2019 quadrennial event.

Saha said, in fact, it's his wife Romi who wishes to see him play in the World Cup.

"My wife badly wants me to play in the World Cup. She insists that I must push harder to achieve that. I am also trying, but ultimately the decision lies with the selectors," Saha, who will turn 33 next month, said.

Fresh from their 9-0 clean-sweep over Sri Lanka, India will take on Australia in a five-ODI, three T20Is limited overs series beginning in Chennai on September 17 and Saha feels Virat Kohli and Co will be tough to beat at home.

"Beating India in India will always be tough. Australia has done well last time but I will put India ahead," Saha, who is currently enjoying a break, said at a promotional event here.

"India's bench strength is very strong. The team is preparing for the 2019 World Cup. That's why the rotation of players is happening. India has been performing well with all sets of players which is a good sign.

"Axar (Patel), (Yuzvendra) Chahal and Kuldeep (Yadav) playing in place of (Ravichandran) Ashwin and (Ravindra) Jadeja. They are being prepared to strengthen the bench. If the need be, they can chip in," he added.
