A week after being left out of India’s T20I squad without playing a game against Bangladesh, Sanju Samson has been called in again as an injury replacement for regular opener Shikhar Dhawan for the three T20Is against West Indies starting on December 6.

Dhawan injured his left leg, which the BCCI’s medical team described as a “deep cut on his left knee”, during a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy game for Delhi against Maharashtra last week. Dhawan still “needs some more time for his stitches to come off and his wound to heal properly”, the BCCI said in a media release.

Meanwhile, wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha underwent surgery in Mumbai on Tuesday for a fracture on his right ring finger. The 35-year-old, who was lauded for his wicketkeeping during India’s inaugural day-night pink-ball Test in Kolkata, picked up the injury during the game.

He was subsequently referred to a hand and wrist specialist, who suggested a “surgical fixation of the fracture”. The BCCI termed the surgery “successful”, and Saha is expected to commence rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. It’s as yet unclear how long Saha’s injury will take to heal.

India’s next Test assignment is a tour of New Zealand in February.

India’s squad for West Indies T20Is: Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma (vice-capt), KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sanju Samson
