Wriddhiman Saha threatened

Wriddhiman Saha, who was recently excluded from the 18 men squad against Sri Lanka has complained about being threatened by a journalist.

Who is Wriddhiman Saha?

Wriddhiman Saha is an international cricketer who plays for India and in domestic cricket, he plays for Bengal. He is the 15th Bengal player who scored a century on his debut match, in the year 2007, for Bengal in the Ranji Trophy. He was also bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders in the inaugural session of IPL.

If we talk about his International career then he has never been a first choice for the team. He has always been considered as a reserved wicket-keeper for the team. There is no doubt about his wicket-keeping skills, but he never amused the selectors with his batting skills. The second reason for not being a permanent member of the playing XI is that he is/was in the era of MS Dhoni.

Whenever he got the chance it was by accident. The first chance he got in 2010 after Rohit Sharma was out due to injury and the 2nd chance he got against Australia when MS Dhoni was out due to slow over-rate.

The roller and coaster career came to an end after the retirement of MS Dhoni from Test cricket in 2014.

Many people have criticised him for disclosing this personal message. Sourav Ganguly’s elder brother Snehashish has criticized this act of Saha.

Wriddhiman Saha also told the media that former cricketer and present coach Rahul Dravid suggested him for retirement from international cricket.

Threatened by Journalist

The veteran wicket-keeper has shared a screenshot of a message from a journalist on Twitter. The journalist is threatening him for an interview.

Although he didn’t reveal the name of the journalist but spoke his heart. He tweeted with the screenshot.
