Wriddhiman Saha got his thumb wounded during T20 playoff match against KKR team. He was a part of Sunrisers Hyderabad team.
As per the speculations, Indian team might take Parthiv Patel or Dinesh Karthik as a replacement.
Prior 2017, Parthiv Patel has played two out of three Tests in South Africa whereas Dinesh Karthik has played in the limited overs matches.
“Saha has been advised more rest as his medical report says he has a broken thumb and he can only play cricket after 5-6 weeks. He got hit while batting in Kolkata and that is why he couldn’t play the final against Chennai Super Kings. The BCCI will be announcing his replacement soon for the Afghanistan Test,” BCCI sources said.
