Kolkata: Ruling out competition with Parthiv Patel, India wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha yesterday said the forthcoming Test series against Australia will be easier than the recently-concluded one against England, which the hosts won 4-0.

The Gujarat stumper impressed with the bat in the three matches he played against England after Saha was ruled out with an injury following the second Test at Visakhapatnam. “There is no competition with him (Parthiv). I like to cash in on my chances. I am not in any competition with anybody,” Saha told reporters on the sidelines of his club Mohun Bagan’s practice session for a Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) local league match.

Asked about Australia’s tour of India early next year, Saha said, “It can be easier than England since they do not have a good record in Asia lately. There are few new players who have not played in India. It won’t be easy for them. At home, whoever plays are always favourites.”
