- The second tweet clearly shows that the guy didn’t apologize: Saha
- BCCI supported me and asked me the journalist’s name: Saha
- Saha, 37, who has been dropped from the Indian team
Veteran Indian wicketkeeper batter Wriddhiman Saha said his second tweet clearly showed the journalist had not apologized. Saha also confirmed that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also reached out to him to take action against this “journalist” but he emailed the full story to the board.
Speaking exclusively to Peppystores, Saha stressed that BCCI asked him for the writer’s name, but he did not reveal his identity. 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.
“The second tweet clearly shows that the guy didn’t apologize. BCCI supported me and asked me for the name, I haven’t told them the name yet. I emailed them the whole story,” Wriddhiman Saha exclusively told Peppystores’s Chat.
“I give the person a chance to think about what they did and if they have any regrets, if they change then I have to think. Had they apologized I wouldn’t have tweeted the second time. Things like that happen. My motive is not to draw controversy, but tell people that things like this happen,” added Saha.
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.
