India Get Saha Boost, Ganguly Says Stumper To Be Suitable For Australia Tests
BRAND-NEW DELHI: Indian cricket board (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly believes wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha, currently nursing a double hamstring injury, will be suitabled for India’s four-test series in Australia beginning next month.
Saha, considered technically the best wicketkeeper in India, hurt both the hamstrings throughout the Indian Premier League and missed out on the playoffs in the United Arab Emirates.
The BCCI recently said it would take a late get in touch with Saha’s availability for the tour which begins with the first of 6 short-form internationals on Nov. 27 in Sydney.
” I believe individuals do not know how the BCCI works,” Ganguly told The Week publication, dismissing criticism of the board’s handling of gamer injuries.
” The BCCI fitness instructors, physio and Wriddhi himself understand that he has 2 hamstring issues.”
” Wriddhi is travelling to Australia because he will be fit for tests. He is not part of the much shorter formats.”
Rishabh Pant is the other wicket-keeper in India’s test squad.
Confusion was also swarming on Rohit Sharma’s hamstring injury which the opener had actually sustained throughout the IPL.
Rohit was initially thought about unsuited for the Australia trip, but continued to play, leading the Mumbai Indians to their record fifth IPL title in Dubai.
He was consequently reminded the test squad.
” Rohit is still 70 per cent (fit),” Ganguly said.
” That is why he is still not picked for the ODIs and T20 s Down Under. He has been contributed to the test team.”
The four-test series for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy will start with a day-night match at Adelaide from Dec. 17.
India captain Virat Kohli will miss the last 3 tests and return house to attend the birth of his first child.
