Former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori lavished praise on Gujarat Titans (GT) wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha and said that he has been very consistent in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.
Saha batted brilliantly in the 62nd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to help Gujarat Titans win and book a spot in the Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2022.
Saha scored 67 runs off 57 balls, including 8 fours and 1 six, and he also won the Player of the Match award for his performance. Overall, he has smashed 281 runs for GT in the tournament at an average of 40.14.
Speaking on ESPNCricinfo, Vettori said that the “real catalyst” Saha deserves a lot of credit for his sensational batting performance.
“We need to give a lot of credit to Wriddhiman Saha. He has been very consistent and has given his side enough runs in the powerplay to not put too much pressure on Shubman Gill or Hardik Pandya.
“He’s been a real catalyst for them in going from just winning games to winning them comfortably,” he said.
GT are a new team but the players are still old and have enough experience – Piyush Chawla
During the same discussion, Piyush Chawla said that the Gujarat Titans franchise is new but the players in the team have a plethora of experience.
He also urged GT to bring back “match-winner” Lockie Ferguson to the playing XI, who has picked up 12 wickets in IPL 2022.
“GT are a new team but the players are still old and have enough experience of playing in the IPL. They have gelled really well and they have looked quite balanced.
“They could just look to make one or two changes now. I would like to see Lockie Ferguson back for the big games because he is a matchwinner,” he added.
