Saha separated from Bengal after getting NOC from CAB

India wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha has parted ways with Bengal, the team he represented in domestic cricket, after a public spat with a state association official. He is now a free agent after obtaining NOC from Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB).

“Mr Wriddhiman Saha came in the cab and sought a no-objection certificate from the association in an application to President Avishek Dalmiya,” the association’s press release said. “CAB agreed to Mr. Saha’s request and granted him NOC to play for another state. CAB also wished him all the best for his future endeavours.”

It started in February, when CAB joint secretary Devvrat Das issued a statement accusing Saha of giving “all kinds of excuses” to “skip” Ranji Trophy matches. This did not go well, Saha apologized, which was not coming forward.

In May, Saha was selected in Bengal’s squad for the Ranji Trophy knockouts, but he said that his permission was not taken before he was named in the squad. Saha is believed to have spoken to CAB officials, who promised him that Das’s statement was not a reflection of the CAB’s stand.

Saha, however, reiterated his stand and said that if the dispute cannot be resolved, he wants a no-objection certificate to leave the state. After the matter went unresolved two months later, Saha finally decided to get an NOC.

However, with Tripura grumbling over Saha’s role as mentor-cum-player, they are in the discussion stage and neither party is ready to comment at this time. Earlier, Gujarat and Baroda, who were briefly linked as Saha’s potential teams, had categorically refused to initiate talks.

The 37-year-old Saha has played 122 first-class matches, scoring 6423 runs at an average of 41.98. He has so far scored 13 centuries and 38 half-centuries. In his 40-Test career, he scored 1353 runs at an average of 30. The home Test series against New Zealand last December was Saha’s most recent appearance in India colours.

While his immediate international future looks bleak, Saha is still signed with IPL champions Gujarat Titans, with whom he had an impressive season, scoring 317 runs in 11 innings at a strike rate of 122.39.
