In a surprising development in Bengal cricket, some reports suggest that senior wicketkeeper batter Wriddhiman Saha might come back to the Bengal cricket team. Saha, who has played 40 Tests for India, previously left Bengal to join Tripura in 2022 following a controversy with CAB joint secretary Debabrata 'Debu' Das.

In the 2021-22 season, Saha pulled out from the Ranji Trophy selection citing "personal reasons". Post that, CAB joint secretary Debabrata 'Debu' Das alleged that Saha was using excuses to skip domestic matches for Bengal.

Saha wanted an apology from Das, which he never received and then decided to join Tripura as a player-cum-mentor. Since then, Saha has played two seasons for Tripura alongside Sudip Chatterjee, who also had taken N.O.C from Bengal to join Tripura.

The below Facebook post from Romi Mitra Saha, Wriddhiman's wife suggested that the wicket-keeper might make his return to Bengal cricket after two years.

Sudip Chatterjee has already taken his N.O.C from Tripura and will be available for selection in the upcoming season for Bengal. With reports of Saha joining Bengal back, Bengal might be having their core middle order group back for the upcoming season. 

Saha has played 136 first-class games in his career and scored 7013 runs.
