Indian wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha has revealed that the journalist who sent him threatening a message over not being given an interview has not got in touch with him. He also clarified that there has been no apology from the person in question.
Former India wicketkeeper and a member of the 1983 World Cup-winning squad, Syed Kirmani has come out support of Wriddhiman Saha, who was recently told that he would not be considered for India. The 37-year-old also received a threatening message from a journalist over his refusal to give an interview. Kirmani compared Saha’s situation to his and claimed that he too was a victim of injustice.
India wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha has clarified that he will not reveal the identity of the journalist who sent him a threatening message. Many from the Indian cricket fraternity asked Saha to name and shame the scribe after he shared the screenshot of the bullying message sent to him on social media.
In what was inevitable, COVID-19 has hit the Indian camp in England. After it was revealed that wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant is COVID-positive, support staff Dayananda Garani has also returned a positive test. The other wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha has also been forced into isolation after being identified as as a close contact. As for Pant, he will have to get a negative test on Sunday to quit the quarantine and join the team. Bowling coach Bharat Arun is also isolating after he too was found to be a close contact.
