But also said that this was preferable to having no interactions at all. Find here some Cricket Betting Tips today and learn from the experts.

Wriddhiman Saha told the media that head coach Dravid had advised him to consider retirement during a private conversation.

“We have only 3 Tests this year. With Rishabh Pant having established himself, we were looking to groom a younger wicketkeeper. This doesn’t change my feelings or respect for Wriddhi or his contribution.”

“The easiest thing for me is to not have these conversations but that’s not who I am. I hope at some stage they will respect the fact that I was at least able to front up and have these conversations with them. Even now, before every XI is in draft, either me or Rohit will speak to those not playing. It’s natural for players at times to get upset. I just felt my team deserved clarity and honest and that’s all I was trying to convey” 

He added

“I’m actually not hurt at all. I have deep respect for Wriddhi and his achievements and his contribution to Indian cricket. My conversation came from that place. I think he deserved honesty and clarity.”

Dravid said

It’s evident that Wriddhiman Saha, at the age of 37, is no longer a part of the Indian cricket team’s future plans. Whether the players like the subject of the chats or not, the India coach stated that he will continue to have similar conversations with them.
