Virat Kohli heaped praise on Gujarat Titans wicketkeeper batter Wriddhiman Saha for his blistering half-century against Lucknow Super Giants in the Indian Premier League match on Sunday. Saha took control over LSG bowlers and smashed them for boundaries at regular intervals to put Titans on top.
The wicketkeeper batter slammed 81 runs off 43 balls which was laced with 10 fours and 4 sixes. The veteran batter kept finding gaps at ease as the Lucknow bowlers struggled miserably to get the breakthrough in the first half of the innings.
Kohli posted a story on his Instagram story and wrote, “What a player” while lauding Saha for his astonishing batting at Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday.
It was Saha’s first half-century in this season of IPL but he failed to convert it into the triple-figure score and was dismissed for 81 by Avesh Khan. The GT opener went for a big shot but was caught by substitute player Prerak Mankad. He shared a 142-run stand for the opening wicket.
