The Luckiest Indian: W.P. Saha

Who the hell is Wriddhiman Saha? And how did he end up on our television (OK, computer) screens? Let’s recap the wonderfully insane story:

A Bangladesh bouncer hit Rahul Dravid in the jaw. Yuvraj Singh suffered a “ligament tear on his left wrist.” V.V.S. Laxman injured his finger while fielding against the Bangladeshis. Rohit Sharma, called up to play for the injured Laxman, was injured during morning practice (no doubt by some cosmic devil).

And so we have: W.P. Saha, perhaps the only person the Indians could find on short-notice hanging about in Nagpur. Add to this the fact that the South Africans won the toss, and it looks like a long five days ahead for us.
