Wridhiman Saha will don Sunrisers Hyderabad jersey in IPL 2018 edition after he was picked up by the frnachise team for a sum of Rs 5 crore. He had been a part of Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders in earlier seasons. Saha is considered to be one of the finest wicket-keepers in the country and he has shown his abilities since MS Dhoni's retirement from Test cricket. Saha has been a regular name on the playing sheet in the longer format. Saha made his Test debut in 2010 against South Africa in Nagpur and has so far played 32 matches scoring 1164 runs including three hundreds. He has been a decent customer behind the stumps too as he has 75 catches and 10 stumpings to his name. Saha struck a 20-ball century playing for Mohun Bagan in a local T20 cricket match in Kolkata. Saha helped Bagan chase down a target of 152 in seven overs against Bengal Nagpur Railways (BNR) in a JC Mukherjee Trophy game.
