Saha sustains another injury
The 35-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman of Indian cricket team sustained an injury during the historic Day/Night Test against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens. After undergoing shoulder surgery following last year’s Indian Premier League Saha made a comeback during the Test series against South Africa. Then yet again he developed this injury during India-Bangladesh Test series. Speaking about the same he said, “It’s like a normal fracture. It should not take more than five weeks to recover. I will take some rest at home and then the rehab process (at the National Cricket Academy) will follow.”
India’s next Test assignment is scheduled against New Zealand beginning on February 21. So he has enough time to be fit. Currently, he is in Siliguri which is his home town. Coming back from rest he will be going for recovery and treatment.
Saha on pink-ball Test
A lot has been talked about during India’s pink-ball Test. The speculations of dew could be a factor was discussed by all. Saha speaking about the same said “It was definitely challenging, especially under lights in the twilight period. The conditions were also hazy. The fielders at the boundary line were not able to sight the ball at one go”. He further added how summer could be better for this kind of fixture. “I guess we would not have faced this problem if the match was held in summer and not during winter”.
While asked for his opinion on regular pink-ball matches he said the probability of red-ball Tests is more presently. “I think maximum matches would be in red ball only and this can be one-off in between. Whatever may be the colour of the ball or the conditions, we will always be prepared. It’s up to the BCCI to take the call”.
