India have called up uncapped wicketkeeper-batsman Naman Ojha ahead of the fourth Test against England at Old Trafford after back-up keeper Wriddhiman Saha sustained an injury.
“Wriddhiman Saha is injured and will soon return to India,” Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Sanjay Patel said. “Ojha will replace him as the back-up wicketkeeper.”
Ojha has been in superb form as of late, especially during India A’s recent tour of Australia in July. During that series, Ojha registered scores of 219 not out, 101 not out and 110 in two unofficial Tests against Australia A.
Ojha has yet to make his Test debut, but has played 101 first-class matches and scored 6,877 runs at a brilliant average of 42.71.
