Wriddhiman Saha to Undergo Shoulder Surgery; To Miss Action for Two Months
Team India wicket-keeper batsman, Wriddhiman Saha is expected to miss cricketing action for at least two months. Thus, the injury rules him out of the England Tests.
Earlier it was believed the thumb injury he sustained during the IPL was a minor one. However, Saha has suffered a career-threatening shoulder injury which has been caused by mishandling of his rehabilitation programme at the National Cricket Academy. The news was announced by atop official from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Saha will undergo a fitness test in the UK next month which might in all likelihood rule him out of the tour of Australia later in the year.
“Wriddhiman’s rehabilitation has been a complete goof up. The NCA physio has bungled it big time. Now only surgery can put him back on track. Once he is done with surgery, he will not touch the bat for at least two months, and then rehab will start,” a senior BCCI was quoted as saying by PTI.
Saha is going through a lean phase
Saha said he is going through a very tough phase in his career, but he is hopeful of bouncing back strongly. The official website of BCCI revealed the wicket-keeper has recovered from the thumb fracture sustained during the IPL.
“Wriddhi first sustained a shoulder injury during the tour of South Africa while taking a catch. But it was a niggle that didn’t bother him. He left SA tour because of hamstring trouble and not shoulder pain though,” the official claimed.
“Now since keepers don’t need to throw from deep, so during IPL, Wriddhi didn’t bother and played with that injury. But the pain didn’t go away. He thought that possibly he could play against England with a good rehab at NCA and take it from there. But at NCA, training under a senior physio aggravated it further,” he stated.
