Along with being a terrific wicket-keeper, Saha is a capable batsman too. The veteran has mustered 1209 runs in 35 matches, which also includes three centuries. India's next assignment in whites will go underway when Bangladesh will tour India to play two Tests. Saha will aim to continue his good run and make a mark with both gloves and bat.
