Have been taking tips from Dhoni: Wriddhiman Saha  

Kolkata, June 7 (IANS) Eager to fill the void created by prolific wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Wriddhiman Saha on Sunday said he was following him closely and seeking tips from the former Test captain.

“I have been with the team for a long time now. Even when Dhoni was playing, I was there to see what he does. I know how he approaches the game, have been following him closely,” Saha said on the eve of the team’s departure to Bangladesh.

India would play one Test and three One-Day Internationals in the neighbouring country.

“I had a word with him (Dhoni). I have learnt a lot of things — be it batting or keeping related issues — and I will try and implement those. I have an added responsibility now representing team India and hope I will be able to fulfill all such responsibilities,” he said.

The 30-year-old Bengal talent, who has featured in just four Test matches, believes there will be not much of a difference in wickets in Bangladesh.

“From childhood I have been playing in Kolkata and there is not much difference in pitches here as compared to pitches in Bangladesh. I hope it will be helpful (practicing here). We have to go there now and further see what the pitches have in store for us,” he said.

Saha added he will try to make the best use of the international exposure that he will get and will approach the games with as much intent as he has done previously in domestic cricket.

“I’ll try and make best of the opportunities that come my way. Hopefully I will improve with more exposure. With it my confidence will be boosted and I will try and approach the international games with as much intent as I have been showing in domestic cricket,” Saha concluded.
