Saha returns after surgery, to begin rehab after 3 weeks
Saha 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.
The agile Bengal stumper, first had injury problem during the tour of South Africa, and had returned early to nurse his hamstring.
"It's still a long way to go for the Australia tour (in December). Let's see, I'm keeping my fingers crossed," he said.
"Injuries are part and parcel of a sportsperson's career. But one should not play with injury. Normally in 55 per cent cases this injury does not recur after it's healed. It all depends the way I recover and how I recover. I don't want to fasten it and take my time. I want to go slow so that this does not aggravate," he said.
Saha has played 32 Tests so far, scoring 1164 runs with three centuries. He has taken 75 catches and effected 10 stumpings.(This story has not been edited by Devdiscourse staff and is auto-generated from a syndicated feed.)
