The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has constituted a three-member committee to look into the matter of Wriddhiman Saha receiving threats and intimidation from a senior journalist. The three member committee comprises of BCCI Vice-President Mr Rajiv Shukla, BCCI Treasurer Mr Arun Singh Dhumal and BCCI Apex Council Member Mr Prabhtej Singh Bhatia.

The committee will start the proceedings as early as next week.
Saha, a centrally contracted cricketer was allegedly threatened by a senior journalist for not responding to his messages asking for an interview. Taking cognizance of the matter the BCCI got in touch with Saha and decided to constitute a three-member committee to investigate the matter.

Earlier, Saha took to social media and uploaded screenshots of the messages he received from one of the renowned journalists. However, he refused to reveal the name, stating that it was not his nature, and he doesn’t want to finish reporter’s career. The 37-year old wanted to give another chance to the accused, and further added that he wouldn’t hold back if pressurized once again.

The Sourav Ganguly-led BCCI has already decided to ban the journalist if he is covering the Indian cricket. Saha was recently dropped from the team for a two-match Test series against Sri Lanka. He has been informed by Rahul Dravid and Chetan Sharma that his services are not required as the management is looking to groom another youngster as a backup for Rishabh Pant.
