‘Totally unacceptable’: Indian Cricketers’ Association on ‘threatening message’ sent to Wriddhiman Saha by journalist

The Indian Cricketers’ Association on Tuesday released a statement and the body condemned the “threatening message” sent by a journalist to wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha. The ICA has also welcomed the BCCI’s decision to probe the issue.

“We acknowledge the fact that the media plays a very important role both in the growth of our game and the players but there’s always a line that must never be crossed. What has happened in Saha’s case is totally unacceptable and we call for the respective press organisations too to take up the matter and ensure such things are not repeated,” ICA President Ashok Malhotra said in an official statement.

On the same day, he was dropped from the Test team for Sri Lanka, Saha took to Twitter to share how a “respected journalist” approached him for an interview and how the messages soon became threatening.
