Wriddhiman Saha Sidelined With Hamstring Tear, Doubtful For Australia Tour

Mumbai: Senior Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha is in doubt for the Australia tour due to a hamstring tear which he suffered during the tournament stage game of Indian Premier League 2020 against Mumbai Indians.

Saha has missed a couple of league stage matches before due to a groin injury.

On Sunday, Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner announced that Saha has a hamstring tear, which now puts his participation in the Australia Test series in doubt.

According to reports, Saha has suffered a grade 1 tear, for which he would need at least four weeks to recover.

In this case, he will fly to Australia soon after the IPL final. Though Saha will be ruled out of the series if it’s a grade 2 tear. Due to ongoing restrictions and protocols, all the players are travelling to Australia at the same time and there are bleak chances of a player joining the camp mid-series.

Hence, the BCCI will have to take a call on Saha’s availability soon.

Rishabh Pant is currently the preferred choice wicketkeeper-batsman in the overseas conditions but Team India will need a backup if Saha doesn’t travel to Australia.

KS Bharat, who was also called up as Saha’s back up during the pink-ball Test match against Bangladesh, leads the race.

He was also called up as KL Rahul’s backup for the second ODI against Australia earlier this year.
