The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has constituted a three-member committee to examine wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha being allegedly intimidated by a journalist.
According to a BCCI assertion issued on Friday, the committee will “look into the matter of Wriddhiman Saha receiving threats and intimidation from a senior journalist”. The three-member committee contains BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla, treasurer Arun Dhumal and apex council member Prabhtej Singh Bhatia.
“The committee will start the proceedings as early as next week,” added the assertion.
Last week, after being dropped from India’s Test squad for the sequence versus Sri Lanka, Saha had put out screenshots of messages by a “respected journalist” that hinted at intimidatory ways. Since then, Saha has refused to reveal the identification of the alleged journalist.
