Saha had sustained the fracture during the recently concluded day-night Test between India and Bangladesh.
“Wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha sustained a fracture on his right ring finger during the recently concluded Pink ball Test in Kolkata against Bangladesh. The BCCI Medical Team consulted a hand and wrist specialist and it was suggested that Saha undergoes a surgical fixation of the fracture,” BCCI said in an official statement.
“Subsequently, he underwent successful surgery in Mumbai on Tuesday and will soon commence his rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy, Bengaluru,” it added.
During the pink-ball Test, Saha had become the fifth Indian wicket-keeper to affect 100 dismissals in the longest format of the game.
