The Board of Control for Cricket In India (BCCI) treasurer Arun Dhumal has said that the board may question Wriddhiman Saha about his recent outburst in Public. Saha, in an interview, revealed that the board president Sourav Ganguly had assured him a place in the Indian Test team after his fifty against New Zealand.
The wicketkeeper-batter also revealed the conversation he had with head coach Rahul Dravid during the South Africa tour. He said that Dravid asked him to consider retirement, adding that team management has informed him that he will not be considered for India team anymore. Since Saha is a centrally contracted player, he is not allowed to reveal internal discussions in public.
“Yes, there is a possibility that BCCI could ask Wriddhiman as to how he spoke on selection matters being a centrally contracted cricketer,” Arun Dhumal was quoted as saying by NDTV.
The treasurer added that Ganguly was trying to motivate the 40-Test player as the board president. He further said that the BCCI would like to know what made Saha go public on his conversations with Dravid.
“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,” the treasurer added.
Dhumal also said that the board will take a call on whether to issue a show-cause notice to Saha or not in a few days. “We haven’t yet decided on the matter. We are all busy but a call will be taken on a few days.”
Recently, Saha had also posted chats of a prominent journalist who had threatened him for not giving an interview.
