India wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha has said that he is looking forward to working with Ravi Shastri again on the Sri Lanka tour.

India wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha has said that he is looking forward to working with Ravi Shastri again on the Sri Lanka tour.

Shastri was the Team Director from 2014 to 2016. Speaking to IANS, Saha said, "He is a very positive coach. When he was team director, he always used to tell us to back our strengths and not be defensive.”

On the change from Anil Kumble to Shastri, Saha said, "Whether it's Ravi bhai or Anil bhai, both will want the team to do well. We also want that as players. Now every coach has it own way of giving inputs. That is to be seen.

"Our job is to perform on the field. I don't think changing of coaches will make much of a difference," the 32-year old stumper said.

Saha was not part of the ODIs as he is a Test specialist. On his preparations, he revealed, "I was playing the local league here (for Mohun Bagan) and have had practice. Yes rain did eat up much of the time but it's not that if I had those extra sessions I would have done something out of the ordinary in Sri Lanka.”
