Summary

  • Believed to be a minor thumb injury till now, Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha is actually nursing a career-threatening shoulder problem caused by a “bungled” rehabilitation programme at the National Cricket Academy, a top BCCI official has claimed.
  • It is learnt that Saha will have to undergo a surgery in the UK next month and that might rule him out of the tour of Australia later this year.
  • Saha has been out of action, citing a thumb injury sustained during this year’s IPL, but it has now come to light that the problem is much bigger than what was initially assessed.
  • The question that is being asked is whether the physio, a former support staff with the Indian team, had given a report about the actual extent of Saha’s injury.
  • Even convenor of selection committee Amitabh Chaudhary (acting secretary) wasn’t informed either by the NCA or selectors about Saha’s actual injury.
