The current talk of the town in the cricketing world is Wriddhiman Saha – Earlier he has blamed BCCI’s approach towards players. The Indian selection committee has announced T20 and Test Squad for the upcoming Sri Lanka series – In that list few senior players like Rahane, Pujara, and Saha’s names are missing. Here Is all about Why Wriddhiman Saha Skipped Ranji Trophy 2022 Season?

And the Selectors have given a reason stating that they asked Saha to play in Ranji Trophy 2022 but he has denied it.

In a recent interview, Saha said – “I can’t tell you on what grounds he has been dropped. That’s for selectors. All I can tell you is that he was told before and asked to play the Ranji trophy, which is the ladder for the Indian team. What we discussed between ourselves we can’t tell you,”

He also mentioned – “Why he did not play Ranji, the state association CAB can tell you that. That is not my jurisdiction. As selectors, we wanted them to play. We are not looking at age.”

Saha further added – “When there are youngsters sitting outside, we thought we shall give chance. For these two test matches. But it’s important to play Ranji. Else, how will we know if you are match-ready?”

Responding to what BCCI has said earlier, Saha said – “Just before I left for South Africa, my wife was admitted to the hospital on account of dengue. Even though she is better, she is not fully fit. So, after being inside the bubble for months, I decided to be with the family and spend some time with the children. That became a big talking point,”

“I was surprised to see how the entire matter got leaked to the media, and my decision of not playing the Ranji Trophy became such a big issue. Back then, I thought that it is important to spend time with the family and that’s why I took the decision.

He has concluded by saying – “I am gearing up for the IPL stint with Gujarat Titans. If the management decides to give me a chance in the playing eleven, I will try and deliver. I have not decided what I will do next season…”
