India wicketkeeper batter Wriddhiman Saha had on Saturday got a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) on Saturday, marking the end of his associations with Bengal in the domestic cricket.
“Mr. Wriddhiman Saha came to CAB and in an application to President Avishek Dalmiya sought the NOC from the association. CAB gave concurrence to the request of Mr. Saha and provided the NOC to him for playing for another state. CAB also wished him the very best for his future endeavours,” said the CAB in its official statement.
It is still not yet known that Saha, who played 122 first-class matches for Bengal since debuting in 2007, will play for which team in the upcoming season of Indian domestic cricket.
Saha was named in Bengal’s squad for the Ranji Trophy quarterfinal match against Jharkhand, but the move happened without his consent and CAB president Avishek Dalmiya later said in a statement that Saha was not willing to play in the knockout match.
The wicketkeeper batter has represented India in 40 Test matches and nine ODIs. He was also the part of the IPL winning Gujarat Titans.
