Wriddhiman Saha is waiting to see the doctor next week in order to know whether he will be able to take part in the one-off Test match against Afghanistan, starting in Bangalore on June 14.

Saha, who injured his right thumb during Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Qualifier 2 against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League at the Eden Gardens, here, on May 25, said that he was not sure whether he would be fit for the historic occasion of Afghanistan’s Test debut.

“I cannot say whether I would be taking part in the Afghanistan Test. The Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) is keeping a track of my injury on a day-to-day basis. It will depend on how I recover,” Saha said, on the sidelines of the launch of the P. Sen memorial cricket coaching camp on the Kalighat Club premises, here, on Thursday.

“I am in touch with a Mumbai-based doctor. He will decide after examining the X-Ray. I will meet him next week," said Saha.

On the coaching camp, Saha informed that 13 coaches, including him, would oversee the camp, comprising 400 trainees from three age groups. “It will be organised in the morning on every weekend. If needed, we will do it on weekdays as well,” he said.
