Wriddhiman Saha called out a journalist on Twitter, and Ravi Shastri reacted.

The shock that a player is “threatened by a journo” was his reaction.

Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI’s president, was summoned by Shastri.

Allies have rushed to Wriddhiman Saha’s defense after the “journalist” who contacted him sent him a screenshot.

After posting a screenshot of texts he received from a “journalist,” Wriddhiman Saha received an outpouring of support from all sides. India’s Test squad for the two-match series against Sri Lanka was without Saha after he took to Twitter and exposed the substance of the texts he had received. Former India coach Ravi Shastri has also weighed in on the topic. Virender Sehwag was among the first to speak out in favor of Saha. Sourav Ganguly, the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, was contacted by Shastri and requested to investigate the incident.

“Stunned the footballer who was being threatened by a journalist Abuse of power at its worst. #TeamIndia has been plagued by this issue far too often. It’s time for the president of the BCCI to get involved. Everyone in the game has a vested interest in learning who this person is. When it comes from WS, the ultimate team player, this is a major matter “Shastri took to Twitter late Sunday night to express his thoughts.

Pragyan Ojha and Harbhajan Singh encouraged Saha to identify the journalist in question.

“He should be called wriddhi. As a player representative, I swear to you that I will ensure that our cricket community refuses to work with this “journalist.”

“Wright, you just named the individual so that everyone in the cricket community is aware of their behavior. Otherwise, even the best people would be questioned. What type of reporting is this?” Harbhajan Singh, in a tweet.

Saturday saw the announcement of India’s Test and Twenty20 international squads. Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara were also omitted from the Test team, as was Ishant Sharma.

Later, Saha said that Rahul Dravid, the team’s head coach, had urged him to “retire” since he would no longer be considered for selection.

The wicketkeeper-batter added that after his valiant 61 in the first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur in November, Ganguly had messaged him to reassure him of his spot in the team “as long as I’m here (helming the BCCI)”.

The two-match Test series between India and Sri Lanka begins on March 4 at home.
