Wriddhhiman Saha has been trending for the past few days. After getting dropped from the Indian team, he went on to make some shocking revelations. While the keeper-batter said that Rahul Dravid had suggested him to retire, he revealed that Sourav Ganguly had assured him a spot in the team after he scored a half-century against New Zealand last year. Besides, he said that the team management has told him that he will not be considered for the future series as they are planning to groom a youngster.

To make matters worse, Saha also shared a WhatsApp chat where a “reputed” journalist was threatening him for not giving him an interview. BCCI took the matter seriously and are now going to initiate an investigation. 

On Friday, the Indian board announced a three-member committee to probe the alleged threat by a senior journalist to Saha. According to a report by India Today, the Bengal cricketer is now ready to reveal the identity of the journalist and has given his consent to probe. It is to be noted that he initially didn’t want to reveal the name of the journalist who spoke to him rudely.

“The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has today constituted a three-member committee to look into the matter of Wriddhiman Saha receiving threats and intimidation from a senior journalist. The three-member committee comprises BCCI Vice-President Mr. Rajiv Shukla, BCCI Treasurer Mr. Arun Singh Dhumal and BCCI Apex Council Member Mr. Prabhtej Singh Bhatia. The committee will start the proceedings as early as next week,” said BCCI in a release.

The 37-year-old has played 40 Tests for India and has scored 1353 runs. His batting average and strike rate are 29.41 and 45.51 respectively. This includes six fifties and three hundreds. He was last seen playing for the Asian side during the two-match Test series against New Zealand at home. Meanwhile, India have included KS Bharat in the squad as the second wicketkeeper.
