Wriddhiman Saha is unwilling to reveal the writer’s name, but issues a warning: Will not hold back if it happens again

Veteran Indian wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha said Tuesday he was hurt and offended by the news but would not publicly reveal the journalist’s name for the sake of humanity.

In a series of tweets, Saha warned that if such an incident were to repeat itself, he would not hold back, while also thanking everyone for their support during this difficult time. Saha also said he was not interested in revealing the name of the person who threatened him and understood that doing so could damage his reputation and career.

“I was hurt and offended. I felt I would not tolerate such behavior and did not want anyone to go through this type of bullying. I decided I will go out and make the chat public in public but not his/her names,” Saha tweeted.

“My nature is not such that I will harm anyone to the point of ending someone’s career. For the sake of humanity looking at his/her family, I will not reveal the name for now. But if such a recurrence happens, I will not hold back.

“Thank you to everyone who has shown support and extended their willingness to help. My gratitude,” he wrote in a series of tweets.

Saha, 37, who was dropped from the India team, had taken to Twitter to claim that a “distinguished” journalist had struck an aggressive tone after refusing to grant him an interview. “After all my contributions to Indian cricket…this is what I experience from a so-called ‘distinguished’ journalist! Journalism has disappeared here,” Saha tweeted.

The Indian Cricketers’ Association (ICA) has condemned a veteran Indian journalist’s “threatening message” to veteran wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha. BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal also said the board would look into the matter and speak to Saha.

“Yes we will ask Wriddhiman about his tweet and what the real incident is. We need to know if he was threatened and also the background and context of his tweet. I can not say more. The Secretary (Jay Shah) will certainly speak to Wriddhiman,” BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhumal told PTI on Monday.
