Indian keeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha has heaped praises on KL Rahul. KL Rahul ascended to the position of being a gloveman for India’s limited-overs side a few months ago this year — and has done more than a satisfying job for them. Wriddhiman Saha engaged in an interview with IANS saying that Rahul has adjusted to the keeping job well.

KL Rahul began keeping wickets during India’s limited-overs leg at home against Australia. He proceeded to do the job against New Zealand as well in their backyard. The Karnataka-born cricketer clattered over 200 runs in the five-game T20 series, earning the Man of the Match award. Furthermore, he has remained polished behind the stumps too.

Wriddhiman Saha conceded that KL Rahul is not doing a bad job. He has done well with the bat and behind the stumps, underlining the tour of New Zealand as a breakthrough one. The 35-year-old went on to say that he has worked hard on his keeping, which bodes very well for the Indian team.

He is not doing a bad job. He is doing well with the bat and behind the stumps. He is adjusting well, we have seen it in New Zealand. He is such a good batsman too and has worked hard on his keeping. This only augurs well for the Indian team,” Saha stated.

Wriddhiman Saha went on to label MS Dhoni as a legend on and off the field, having announced his retirement two days ago along with Suresh Raina.

The gloveman further said that Dhoni was never predictable in his decisions and always exuded positivity in his body language. He understands that the pair’s retirements were not largely surprising since they remained out of international cricket for a long time.

He is a legend on and off the field. He has never really taken a predictable decision. I have always seen him to be positive and there was never a negative bone in his body. It was a bit surprising. But Dhoni and Suresh Raina were not in touch as far as international cricket is concerned. So it was not out of the blue. People were guessing, now it has become clear,” Wriddhiman Saha added.
