Time for BCCI Prez to dive in: Ravi Shashtri on Journalist threatening Wriddhiman Saha

The 37-year-old wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha is in the news after he shared a screenshots of messages that a “respected” journalist had sent him on WhatsApp.

The news: The screenshot had the sender requesting Saha “to do an interview with me”, to which Saha did not respond.

Here is what happened? The messages eventually took a more aggressive tone: “You did not call. Never again will I interview you. I don’t take insults kindly. And I will remember this. This wasn’t something you should have done.”

  • Stepping into the matter now, the Board of Control for Cricket in India will ask wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha to explain a tweet he posted on Saturday. Soon after his tweet Saha received support from everyone.
  • Saha had taken to Twitter and shared the contents of the messages after he was dropped from India’s Test squad for the two-Test series against Sri Lanka.
  • Virender Sehwag was the first to support Saha over his tweet.
  • Now former India coach Ravi Shastri has also stepped in and said it was “shocking a player being threatened by a journo” and asked BCCI president Sourav Ganguly to look into the matter.
  • “Shocking a player being threatened by a journo. Blatant position abuse. Something that’s happening too frequently with #TeamIndia. Time for the BCCI PREZ to dive in. Find out who the person is in the interest of every cricketer. This is serious coming from ultimate team man WS,” Shastri tweeted on Sunday night.
