Saha attended practice seasons for last two days. According to the source, he is suffering from high fever. Shreevats Goswami will play in place of him.

Bengal CEO Jaydip Mukherjee said, “Wriddhiman was fit till the last night, but suddenly he felt ill at the morning. Soon he called physio and shared his health condition. He also informed his teammates after getting into the ground. Then we decided to rest him.” Wriddhi said, “We can’t control our human body. I felt ill so I didn’t play the match.” According to the source, he will get back to Kolkata.

As per sources, Parthiv Patel got an injury in his left middle finger while playing against Bengal in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinals. It was very serious as he was off the field rest of the match.  Team India’s second wicketkeeper will not travel to South Africa for the next tour. If Saha gets injured in this semifinal match India will be in deep trouble ahead of Protease tour. It can be a cause Bengal will not get Saha’s service in this match.

Indian team management didn’t give green signal to Papli to play the game. He was in two minds whether to play in semifinals or not. At last the problem solved and Bengal wicketkeeper flew to Pune.
