Gujarat Titans (GT) wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha put his pants the wrong way in a hurry after sub-fumbling in GT camp moments after the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) opener.

For starters, KS Bharat was out for wicketkeeping duties after Saha’s exploits with the bat in today’s match, where he scored 81 off 43 balls. GT Think decided to rest the 38-year-old after his fighting tournaments.

However, the on-field umpires soon got involved and made it clear to GT coach Ashish Nehra and captain Hardik Pandya that they could only appoint a replacement wicket-keeper if Saha was injured or Bharat was used as an impact player.

Meanwhile, he brought in defending champions Alzari Joseph in place of Schopman Gill as an impact player. Joseph was added to the side in place of Joshua Little, who was unavailable due to international commitments.

However, Redman Saha looked annoyed as he continued after a few counts. Doctors came out to check on him and he was immediately escorted from the field, and KS Bharat eventually replaced him as wicket-keeper.
