“Physiologists are in constant contact with head coach Rahul (Dravid) and obviously Virat (Kohli) now and as we get closer to the game we will take a call and see what condition he is in,” said Mhambrey at the virtual press conference on Wednesday.
Bharat has a triple cent as an opener and his inclusion would mean Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane would remain in the game eleven.
Mhambrey praised Saha for his efforts in the Kanpur test.
“But obviously with everything he (Saha) went through, I think (it was a) fabulous effort in the last test match to beat there. It was painful, we realize it but he put his hand up and (said) the team wanted him and he delivered it for the team, really happy to see that, ”added Mhambrey.
