Wriddhiman Saha has been trending for the last few days. After getting dropped from India's squad for the upcoming two-match Test series against Sri Lanka, he went on to make some shocking revelations. While he said that Sourav Ganguly had assured him a place in the side, he also said that Rahul Dravid had suggested him to consider retirement.

The contrasting conversations of The BCCI president and head coach caused huge unrest among the fans. To make matters worse, Saha also shared a screenshot where a journalist seemingly threatened him for not responding to his calls. The keeper-batter was able to speak all of this openly as he was snubbed from the team.

However, all these revelations have managed to grab the attention of the board as well. According to a report by Sports Tiger, the BCCI wants to dig deep into the matter and find out the exact details pertaining to the issue. An official recently drew light about the same.

“The matter cannot be put to rest until every single detail of what Saha has said in the interview and the tweet he shared is looked into. Saha is a contracted cricketer of the BCCI. The onus is on the Board to not let its own player down. That aside, if there is any kind of a nexus at work here, one has to look into it,” officials tracking these developments said.

In the meanwhile, they were absolutely baffled over how Ganguly could assure Saha a place in the side. The officials felt that it was really wrong. However, they felt that it was understandable for Dravid to speak to the 37-year-old. “The Rahul Dravid-bit is understandable. He’s the national coach and may have wanted to keep his players in the loop. That’s between the coach and the players. What was the need for a BCCI official to speak with Saha and assure him of a place in the side? ‘I don’t need to worry till he’s there’. Kitni galat baat hai yeh (How wrong it is to say something like this),” the officials added.
