Yeah the meek saha was hitting out second innings. Same meek saha has amazing ipl 100s

Saha is one of those guys who even if perform good, he would get no acknowledgement of his work since he lacks looks, brand factor and X factor. Also it doesn't help he isn't an outstanding talent either with bat. After years of watching dhoni(a safe but uninspiring keeper) and a lot of terrible keepers a decade before, people don't expect or rate genuine keeping skills.

Its not even about x-factor , the fact is teams needing of more batting cushion goes against him. Had we been playing 6 batsman he wont have faced this....now that we are playing 5 batsman it becomes more important to wk contributes with bat.

I wont be surprised if DK comes in picture soon

 

At this point the need has become for an all round keeper then just a gr8 keeper. With many overseas tour it wont be easy for Saha. Saha might do well in england but he doesnt give me confidence against bowler with high pace of SA n AUS. The position which he comes in shows how little team mngmt has confidence in him, he might be played depending on opposition bowling. There wud be places like were parthiv keeping wud prove more costly to team.
