Wicketkeeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha’s injury to the groin (between thigh and groin) is not ‘serious’. Meanwhile, his franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will take any step in this matter only after consultation with the medical team of the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India). This experienced wicket-keeper-batsman is part of the team going on tour to Australia after this T20 competition.
The BCCI medical team monitors the injury to players of the national team. Saha suffered this injury during the IPL match played against Delhi Capitals on Tuesday. He played an aggressive innings of 87 off 45 balls in Manch but did not come for wicketkeeping again. Substitute Srivats Goswami was replaced by wicketkeeping.

Team captain David Warner said after the match, “Unfortunately there is an injury to his groin but hope it is not too serious.” Saha is part of the Indian Test team that will travel to Australia next month to play a four-match series from mid-December. The BCCI source said that all the franchisees have been told to be a little cautious about the fitness of the national team players.
The official said, “It is not looking serious at the moment but there is still three days (on 31 October against Royal Challengers Bangalore) in the next match of the Sunrisers.” We are hoping that will be good. ‘
There is a possibility that Saha may be advised to rest in the next two matches and if the Sunrisers manage to secure a place in the play-offs then he will be fully fit. Saha, in an interview with star spinner Rashid Khan on IPL T20.com, hoped that he would recover from this injury soon.
