BCCI is upset with Wriddhiman Saha’s statements on Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid

The BCCI is set to question Indian wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha over his statements on BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, head coach Rahul Dravid, and chief selector Chetan Sharma.

Wriddhiman Saha, one of India’s best wicket-keepers, may be in trouble. A lot of incidents have happened with Wriddhiman Saha after he was dropped in the Sri Lanka series. Sri Lanka’s team has come to India for three T-20 matches and two Test matches and Wriddhiman Saha has not been found in the Test team, After which he had made public some things related to BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Head Coach Rahul Dravid, due to which he may now have to face consequences.

Making statements on BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Head Coach Rahul Dravid is a violation of the 6.3 Clause mentioned in BCCI’s Annual Contract. Wriddhiman Saha is currently included in Group B in the Annual Contract for which he is paid ₹3 crores.


Clause 6.3 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 the opinion of the BCCI is adverse to and /or not in the interest of the game, team or BCCI in any media”

In his statement, Saha has made public many things he had done with his coach Rahul Dravid and some things related to BCCI Chief Selector Chetan Sharma and Sourav Ganguly. Which violates the protocol mentioned in the contract.

“Yes, it is possible that BCCI may question Wriddhiman Saha and ask him why he made a statement on the issue of selection despite being a centrally contracted cricketer.”Arun Dhamal told PTI.

Many people associated with the BCCI also believe that Saha has damaged his own image by making statements on Dravid and Ganguly.
