New Delhi [India], Dec. 6 : Recalled wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel will continue to be part of the Indian team for the fourth Test of the ongoing five-match series against England beginning December 8 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

In a press release, the BCCI said, "The BCCI medical team has confirmed that wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha is still recuperating from the strain in his left thigh, which he sustained during the second Test match at Vizag."

"As a precautionary measure, Saha has been advised rest. The BCCI medical team is monitoring the wicketkeeper-batsman's progress," the release added.

Mohali (Punjab)[India], Nov. 30 : Parthiv Patel, the Indian wicketkeeper-batsman, who was recalled into the Test side after a gap of eight years in the Mohali game against England, made a mark before the selectors and scored in both the innings.

Usually, whenever a cricketer makes a comeback after such a long time, there is bit of tentativeness and lack of self confidence. But not was the case with Patel, who had made his Test debut at the age of 17.

Opening the batting for India, walking out to the middle with Murali Vijay, the 31-year-old left hander made a classy 42 in the first innings. Those 42 runs, which he scored with absolutely no discomfort, showed how much it meant for him to don the India whites back again.

New Delhi [India], Nov. 23 : Wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel, who last appeared in Test matches in 2008 against Sri Lanka, will replace injured Wriddhiman Saha in the third Test of the ongoing five-match series against England to be played in Mohali commencing November 26.

Patel has earned a recall to India's Test team as Saha, who developed a strain in his left thigh during the Visakhapatnam Test, has been advised rest by the BCCI medical team.

The 31-year-left hander, who made his Test debut in 2002 against England, has so far played 20 Tests for the national side in which he has scored 683 runs at an average of 29.69.
