As long as I am feeling well, I will continue. ,
Also, Saha is looking to pick his next domestic cricket team after being hurt by questions raised by one. Cricket Association of Bengal officials on their commitment to the team.

Saha was also in the news earlier this year when he posted screenshots of a chat with a journalist which did not go down well, ignoring the cricketer’s call.
This created a storm with BCCI eventually banning the journalist for two years.

“My aim was to let everyone know that there are journalists who can go to this length to interview. The youth has been involved in such incidents in the past but it was revealed later. So maybe that’s why BCCI punished him. I have no say in this. I didn’t want to complain initially because everyone has their own career. However, if the other side has no remorse, it is difficult to remain silent for long,” Saha said.
