Since Wriddhiman Saha obtained the No-Objection Certificate from the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) to join the Tripura squad, the much-anticipated split in domestic cricket has been finalized. The experienced wicketkeeper’s NOC and recruitment were both approved by the CAB and Tripura Cricket Association on Saturday, July 2. Here in this article, we talk about Wriddhiman Saha set to play for Tripura.

“Mr. Wriddhiman Saha visited CAB and requested the NOC from the association in a letter to President Avishek Dalmiya. Mr. Saha’s plea was approved by CAB, and he was given the NOC to play for another state. Additionally, CAB wished him well in his future endeavors “In a statement, the CAB stated.

Since the association’s joint secretary Debabrata Das openly questioned Saha’s dedication to State cricket, the Saha-CAB dispute has been boiling for a while. Saha has been quite clear about his dissatisfaction. He had previously said to Sportstar last month, “For me, too, it is a really terrible feeling that I have to go through something like this after playing for Bengal for so long.”

The notion of him joining Tripura and remaining in the East itself had been circulating in the home circuit for some time, and the TCA announced that he would serve as the team’s mentor and interim captain.

“We (TCA and Saha) have reached a basic understanding of this. When he visits Agartala the following week, the specifics will be resolved. We held an Apex Council meeting yesterday (Friday, July 1), and the members videoconferenced with him. The organization agrees that Saha will be a wise choice for the state’s professional team, “According to Kishore Das of the TCA, Cricbuzz.

Sameer Dighe, a former India stumper like Saha, is the coach of Tripura, a hill state in the East Zone. “This year’s Ranji Trophy will mark its 35th anniversary. There hasn’t been a Tripura player in the Indian squad. In addition to doing well, that is our primary goal “Das stated.

Saha has been connected to a number of organizations since the dispute started, including the cricket associations of Gujarat and Baroda in the West. Saha’s participation for the Gujarat Titans team in the IPL fueled the rumors. Both associations, when contacted by Cricbuzz, denied ever holding conversations.

Saha (37), who represented Bengal for 15 years and played 122 first class games and 102 List A matches, was told by the Rahul Dravid-led Indian team management that his 40 Test appearances and nine ODI appearances would not be considered international cricket due to the increasing number of young players.
