Wriddhiman Saha, who last played for India last year against South Africa, is looking forward to play in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy, which will start from February 21.

Bengal will take on Sikkim in their opening match at Barabati Stadium in Cuttack and Saha is looking forward to that game. Saha’s sole focus is on helping his team to perform well in the championship.

“It definitely feels great to back in the mix after an injury layoff. Firstly for a sportsperson, there is nothing like the feeling of returning to the game and I don’t feel like I’ve been away for too long, rather just a couple of weeks or so, like a short break. Right now my focus is solely on helping Bengal do well in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy,” Saha was quoted as saying in Cricket Next.

“Rishabh got his chance when I was out and just like anyone would look to grab their chance with both hands he did the same. I don’t look at him as my competition, in fact when he came to the NCA we spent a lot of time together which was nice. We hardly spoke about performances and selection.

“My job is to play to the best of my ability and ensure I contribute to the needs of my team at all times. I feel the selection matters are not in my hand. So the main aim is to do well and then let things take its own course,” he added.
