The Indian wicket-keeper and batsman Wriddhiman Saha has in headlines recently due to some controversial events. He had accused a journalist of threatening him, while he also made some bold remarks on the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) regarding team selection matters. Now, it seems that the board is likely to question veteran Indian cricketer for his recent comments on BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, Chairman of selectors Chetan Sharma and team head coach Rahul Dravid. Wriddhiman Saha could have possibly breached the central contract.
Wriddhiman Saha could be in trouble
The clause 6.3 of the BCCI central contract for the players states that: “Player shall not make any comments about the game, officials, incidents that happened in the game, use of technology, selection matters or any other matter related to the game which is in opinion of the BCCI is adverse to and /or not in the interest of the game, team or BCCI in any media…”
Saha was dropped from the Test squad for the series against Sri Lanka at home and the 37-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman had told media about his conversation with Ganguly after the knock against New Zealand, the “retirement” suggestion from Dravid and the conversation he had with Chetan before the squad announcement.
“Yes, there is a possibility that BCCI could ask Wriddhiman as to how he spoke on selection matters being a centrally contracted cricketer. As far as the president is concerned, he had tried to motivate him. The board might like to know what made him go public with his dressing room conversations with coach Dravid,” BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal told PTI on Thursday.
We will have to see what future holds for Saha in the coming days.
