Indian test wicketkeeper batter, Wriddhiman Saha, on Saturday confirmed that he has opened up all the details relating to the matter involving the journalist who intimidated him for not giving an interview. The cricketer said that he has provided all the details of the matter to the three-member probing committee of the BCCI.
“I have told the committee everything I know. I have shared all the details with them. I can’t tell you much right now. BCCI has asked me not to talk about the meeting outside as they will answer all your queries,” Saha told reporters after appearing before the committee here.
Wriddhiman Saha, with a series of tweets earlier, exposed an unnamed journalist who tried to bring him in his interview, however, when rejected the offer by the cricketer, the journalist disrespected him.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), soon after the incident grabbed the attention of the general public, took it on itself to sort out the matter and assured that the matter wouldn’t be laid down to rest until justice is served.
A three-member probing committee was formed soon to investigate the incident that happened with the veteran cricketer. The BCCI was also keen to know if there were any other cricketers who went through the same torture from the media houses.
