A shoulder injury has forced Wriddhiman Saha to leave, but India's best tennis player in the last five to ten years, according to former Captain Sourav Ganguly.
The 34-year-old Saha, who was the number one in Washington at the critical cricket since MS Dhoni's retirement in December 2014, was restored for shoulder surgery.
"He's out of the team for about a year now, but I think the last five to ten years are the best gloves in India. I hope he will recover soon," said Gangwui.
The former captain spoke during the release of "Wiki," a sports fantasy written by senior journalist Gautam Bhattacharya. The book records the journey of a competing wicketkeeper and how he does it great.
The young Rishabh Pant made an impressive start for his test career and will fly for the upcoming Australian tour. Parthiv Patel is also in the team as a backup copy of Pant.
Saha, who has played 32 tests and scored 1164 tracks including three hundred, played for the last time in the Cape Town test earlier this year. With India not playing tests after the Australian tour until July 2019, the future of the Bengal wicketkeeper remains uncertain.
"The injury is not in your hands." The Wicketkeeper has to dive and get injured during the dive, to recover the time, the faster he recovers, the better he is, "said Ganguly.
