Wriddhiman Saha is a 37-year-old Indian International Cricketer who shared a screenshot on social media a day before yesterday where he has mentioned that he is receiving some treats from a media person to give an interview.
Here, there is a reason, as Wriddhiman Saha was not get selected for the team that will be played against Sri Lanka. Before this, he also created a controversy by saying that Rahul Dravid, the current coach of the Indian cricket team has told him to get retirement from cricket.
Instead of Wriddhiman Saha, Rishabh Pant and KS Bharat have got an opportunity to represent India. After Wriddhiman Saha’s allegation, all the cricket fraternity have stood up with him and supported him.
The former head coach of the team India expressed his views on social media regarding this. He said, “It is very surprising that a sportsperson is being threatened by a journalist. This is an abuse of his position. This is happening continuously with the Indian team. The BCCI President should immediately intervene in this matter. Need to find out who that person is. It is in the interest of every cricketer. It’s a serious issue that teammate Wriddhiman Saha has said.
Saha shared a WhatsApp screen chat
Saha has shared a screenshot of a chat between the journalist and him in which the journalist is saying “Give me an interview. It will be good. If you want to be Democratic, I will not pressurize you. He selects a wicketkeeper. Whatever happens, is best. You try to select 11 journalists, who are not the best in my opinion. Choose the one who can prove to be the most helpful.”
“You didn’t call me, I will never interview you again. I will not take it lightly and will remember. You shouldn’t have done this.” Added journalist.
Along with Ravi Shastri, Team India’s former explosive opener Virender Sehwag, veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh, former spinner Pragyan Ojha and former pacer RP Singh have also condemned this act strongly.
