Wriddhiman Prasanta Saha (born 24 October 1984) is an Indian cricketer who plays for the Indian national team and for Bengal in first-class matches in India. He’s also the first cricketer to hit a century in the final of the Indian Premier League. In the Indian Premier League, he plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad. He bats as a wicket-keeper.
In February 2010, Saha made his Test debut as a specialist batsman.

Before being promoted to first-class cricket, Saha played for the Under-19s and Under-22s teams. Saha made his one-day debut against Assam in the Ranji Trophy competition in 2006/07.
