He has had fun with the bat on the few events he has performed this season, scoring 30 in 31 balls from the centre order first up in opposition to the Kolkata Knight Riders however then blossoming when pushed to the highest of the order because the crew dropped Jonny Bairstow to accommodate Jason Holder. Saha’s scores after that have been 87 in 45 balls in opposition to the Capitals, 39 in 32 in opposition to the Royal Challengers and 58* in 45 in opposition to the Mumbai Indians.
