A thumb injury to India’s Test wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha has made him a doubtful starter for the one-off Test against Afghanistan starting in Bengaluru from June 14.

Saha injured his right thumb while playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL 2018 Qualifier 2 against Kolkata Knight Riders on May 25.

“To determine the future course of injury management, Mr Saha will see a specialist and the BCCI Medical Team will continue to monitor his progress,” said the BCCI in a statement.

If Saha is unable to regain full fitness, Parthiv Patel or Dinesh Karthik could replace him for the Afghanistan’s inaugural Test.
