Wriddhiman Saha has been through a lot in the week gone by. After being dropped from the Indian Test side for the upcoming homes Test series against Sri Lanka starting March four, he was already not having a fine time. However, the biggest incident of them all was not willing to get interviewed by a renowned journalist for which the veteran wicketkeeper-batter was threatened.

After the incident, Saha went on to share the screenshots via his official Twitter handle which became viral in no time. Now. it seems that the matter has not only escalated but has also got out of control and lately, it has been reported that the BCCI has set up a committee to investigate the online threats to the India Test specialist.

BCCI committee to investigate Wriddhiman Saha’s matter: Reports

According to Cricbuzz, the national cricket board has set up a three-member committee to investigate the matter of the Bengal stumper after he had shown the evidence of him being allegedly threatened by a journalist. The report further adds that in a BCCI release issued on February 25, it has been confirmed that the committee will be headed by Vice-President  Rajiv Shukla, Treasurer Arun Singh Dhumal, and Apex Council Member Prabhtej Singh Bhatia. The investigation is expected to start as early as next week.

Meanwhile, Wriddhiman Saha did not reveal the name of the journalist in public yet but has made it clear that the person’s act has ‘hurt’ and ‘offended’ him. In the screenshot forwarded by Saha on the micro-blogging site, a journalist was forcing him to get interviewed and when the gloveman showed no interest, it tested the latter’s patience, and the person replied by saying “You did not call. Never again will I interview you. I don’t take insults kindly. And I will remember this.

An angry Saha had enough and made the conversation public by saying “After all of my contributions to Indian cricket. this is what I face from a so-called “Respected” journalist! This is where the journalism has gone”.
