Yuvraj Singh has defended the facilities at National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru after rising criticism over reports of wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha facing a career-threatening shoulder problem caused by a "bungled" rehabilitation programme at the Academy. 

It was reported that senior players are growing disinclined towards the rehab and training at the academy.

Believed to be suffering from a minor thumb injury till now, Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha is actually nursing a career-threatening shoulder problem, according to a top BCCI official. 

"Wriddhiman's rehabilitation has been a complete goof up. The NCA physio has bungled it big time. Now only a surgery can put him back on track. Once he is done with surgery, he will not touch the bat for at least two months and then rehab will start," a senior BCCI official told PTI. 

Saha has been out of action, citing a thumb injury sustained during this year's IPL, but it has now come to light that the problem is much bigger than what was initially assessed.

It was also reported that the ace Indian pacers Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been struggling to maintain their shape. Bhuvi was sent back home from England after he was discovered not to be fully fit. 

Yuvraj, however, has come out backing NCA as he took to his social media accounts to share his ordeal post-cancer.

Yuvi wrote,"Hearing criticisms abt NCA. I wud like to share my experience that the reason why I was able to bounce back after cancer was the national cricket academy a great facility created by @bcci to help players recover from injuries with the help of best Physios & trainers in the country." 

India will take on England in the first Test of the five-match series from August 1 at Edgbaston.
