Can anyone explain why has the ‘wicket-keeper’ Riddhiman Saha been dropped after record 10 catches behind the wicket !?

Hamstring injury

It was soft target !! Mumbai lobby !! Parthib patel is better batsman than him as per team management!! They are simply forgetting the purpose of a wicket keeper!!

There was no contribution with bat. It was a straight forward choice. I am actually gutted to see Bhuvi replaced with Ishant. Bumrah should have been benched if he wanted to play Ishant. Bhuvi was the prime bowler and scored handy runs in lower order in d frst match.

@pankil let me know the last 10 matches avg for saha !! One match should not bother anyone!! Any way I wish parthiv scores 200 !! And also wish he takes all his catches!!

Since his performance is not up to the satisfaction of the selection committee.

I think he has an injury, or so i read in cricinfo commentary. Saha has been a rock behind the stumps. To drop him for any reason other than injury is a crime, especially for the poorest slip cordon in international cricket

Srinivas you sum it all….I was thinking initially whether he is also facing similar ill treatment that has been meted out to Ashwin in recent time

I also don’t find any justification behind Jadeja not playing.

Because Wriddhiman is a bengali cricketer . His 10 catches and spiderman like movements should be forgotten .

May be the Indian coach & captain thought that Parthib can be a better bat than Saha….

    This time there was conflict …Ravi Shastri wanted Saha to continue

They are trying to put all kind of support to the great Indian batting squad after their great flop show which every time a common occurrence in away series at SA/Aus……

I was going though an Artical by Sportskeeda !! If you see the comments on that article , You will believe “Those spider-man efforts” are forgotten !! And people hates “SAHA” .. They think he cant bat !! Where as SAHA’s Record is much better with bat than Parthiv in foreign soil and Indian Soil !! And as a Keeper he is India’s Number ONE !!

I feel that Saha with a hamstring niggle would still have been better than Parthiv..

Injured Saha is not good for Indian Cricket so it is good he remains out. I think he may not even play the third test given his injury – that way he is fresh for the tour Down Under later in the year.
