Wriddhiman Saha, the wicketkeeper of the Indian cricket team, has been in the news for the past few days. The squad was announced for the T20 and Test series to be played against Sri Lanka. Chief selector Chetan Sharma announced the squad, with KS Bharat named in the Test squad as the second wicketkeeper. A controversial interview came after Saha was ousted. Apart from this, a tweet was also made which is in controversy.
Saha, the wicketkeeper of the Indian cricket team, in a tweet on February 19, brought to the fore how a journalist sent him a threatening message for not giving him an interview. Saha posted a screen shot of the message made by the journalist on Twitter and expressed his anguish. He wrote that this honor was achieved after serving the country through cricket for so many years. A respected journalist wrote such things to me, see the extent to which journalism has reached today.
It is worth noting that after this matter became an issue in social media, now BCCI is also looking strict against it. Talking to a website, Board Treasurer Arun Dhumal said, We are serious about this matter and are talking about it. See, first of all we have to find out who are those journalists and in what context was the message sent. Only after knowing all this, we will be able to take any action regarding this.
