Injuries have plagued the Indian team which went on to become one of their factors in their recent defeat in the ODI series. Players such as Washington Sundar, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Wriddhiman Saha are all out of action due to injuries.
The injuries sustained have taken a huge toll since Saha will require surgery to repair the injured shoulder. The wicket-keeper batsman is having a torrid year since injuries have shadowed him ever since the long tour to South Africa.
Saha provided an update on his condition through a post on Twitter.

Due to this, Saha has been excluded from the Indian squad for the 5-match test series in England with Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant included as backups to don the gloves in England.
