Team India bowling coach Paras Mhambrey has given an update on wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha’s neck injury ahead of the second and final Test against New Zealand in Mumbai. Saha couldn’t take the field in New Zealand’s second innings in the Kanpur Test due to a stiff neck, with KS Bharat donning the gloves. The senior pro had brave the strain to come out to bat during India’s second innings and scored a vital half-century that helped plump the lead. Paras also said that India would take a host of positives from the series opener.
