Manchester, Aug 1 (IANS) The BCCI wished Wriddhiman Saha a speedy recovery after the Test specialist stumper underwent a surgery in his shoulder in Manchester on Wednesday.

The BCCI posted a photo on social media saying: “Here’s wishing @Wriddhipops a speedy recovery. He underwent a laberal repair surgery in Manchester on Wednesday under the supervision of BCCI medical team.”

According to an earlier BCCI statement, the 33-year-old Saha sustained a posterosuperior labral tear that needed a surgery.

The Bengal keeper had returned early from the South Africa tour at the start of the year to nurse his hamstring.

Saha then missed the one-off Test against Afghanistan due to a thumb injury he picked up while playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on May 25.
