Back to country after undergoing a shoulder surgery in Manchester, wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha says the recovery period seems more difficult than facing fast bowlers.
His right hand heavily strapped from below the elbow, Saha returned this morning after his laberal repair surgery at the Arm Clinic in Manchester. He will begin his rehabilitation at National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru after completing a mandatory three-week rest period.
“It’s very difficult. You cannot move the hand and I have to keep it in one position. It’s more difficult than facing pacers. But this is the only way to go forward and make a comeback. I just have to go by it,” said Saha.
During the Indian Premier League, Saha suffered a thumb injury that kept him out of the one-off Test against Afghanistan in June. It was later discovered that Saha was carrying a shoulder injury that ruled him out of contention for the ongoing tour of England.
