Veteran India wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha refused to name the journalist who had sent him threatening messages on WhatsApp but has issued a warning in a new series of tweets to the journalism world that if he is threatened against and such misbehavior is repeated again, then he will not hold back.

As many know, Saha, 37, was recently sacked from the Indian Test team along with Cheteshwar Pujara, Ishant Sharma, and Ajinkya Rahane for the upcoming two-Test series against Sri Lanka in March. He then went on to reveal that head coach Rahul Dravid and chief of selectors Chetan Sharma had confirmed that he is no longer in plans of the Indian team management and even suggested that he retires.

After this, Saha also revealed that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly had assured him of his place in the Indian team after the Kanpur Test against New Zealand. This all led to a huge controversy in the Indian cricket scene.

I Was Hurt And Offended. My Nature Isnt Such That I Will Harm Anyone To The Extent Of Ending Someone’s Career: Wriddhiman Saha On Not Revealing The Name Of Journo

This led to BCCI asking the Indian keeper-batter for the name of the journalist who had threatened him, with treasurer Arun Dhumal saying that the board will take strict action against the erring party. Many former cricketers like Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag, Venkatesh Prasad urged Saha to reveal the name, but it seems the keeper doesn’t want to do it, despite support from the board, cricketers, and fans alike.

Wriddhiman Saha on Tuesday said that he was hurt and offended by the messages but would not expose the name of the journalist in public on grounds of humanity. In a series of tweets, Saha warned that he will not hold back if such an incident happens again, while also thanking everyone for all the support during this tough period.

“I was hurt and offended. I thought not to tolerate such kind of behaviour and didn’t want anyone to go through these kind of bullying. I decided I will go out and expose the chat in the public eye, but not his/her name,” Saha tweeted.

“My nature isn’t such that I will harm anyone to the extent of ending someone’s career. So, on grounds of humanity looking at his/her family, I am not exposing the name for the time being. But if any such repetition happens, I will not hold back. “I thank each and everyone who has shown support and extended their willingness to help. My gratitude,” he wrote in a series of tweets.
