Saha will begin his rehabilitation at National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru after completing a mandatory three-week rest period.
"It's very difficult. You cannot move the hand and I have to keep it in one position. It's more difficult than facing pacers. But this is the only way to go forward and make a comeback. I just have to go by it," said Saha.
It was later discovered that Saha was carrying a shoulder injury that ruled him out of contention for the ongoing tour of England.
The Australia Test series begins in December 6, which may be a realistic chance of Saha's comeback plans.
"It's still a long way to go for the Australia tour (in December). Let's see, I'm keeping my fingers crossed," he said.
"Injuries are part and parcel of a sportsperson's career. But one should not play with injury. Normally in 55 per cent cases this injury does not recur after it's healed. It all depends the way I recover and how I recover. I don't want to fasten it and take my time. I want to go slow so that this does not aggravate," he said.
Saha has played 32 Tests so far, scoring 1164 runs with three centuries. He has taken 75 catches and effected 10 stumpings.
