Take deep breath and tell the name: Virender Sehwag urges Wriddhiman Saha to reveal journalist's name who allegedly threatened him

Kolkata/IBNS: Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has urged wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha to reveal the journalist's name who has allegedly threatened the latter in online messages.

Saha on Saturday shared a screenshot of an online conversation where a journalist allegedly pressed him for an interview.

He tweeted, "After all of my contributions to Indian cricket..this is what I face from a so called “Respected” journalist! This is where the journalism has gone."

After the cricket fraternity supported Saha, Sehwag, who was known for his fearless batting, tweeted, "Dear Wriddhi, it's not your nature to harm others and you are a wonderful guy.

"But to prevent such harm from happening to anyone else in the future , it's important for you to name him. Gehri saans le, aur naam bol daal."

Prior to this, Saha had dropped bombshell disclosing his private conversation with Indian cricket board (BCCI) chief Sourav Ganguly, who in his words had assured the wicketkeeper-batsman a place in the playing XI following his match-saving knock of unbeaten 61 against New Zealand.

However Indian head coach Rahul Dravid, as Saha said, conveyed to him that the team management was looking for a fresh player.

Hitting back at Saha, Ganguly's elder brother and Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) secretary, Snehasis Ganguly, said the wicketkeeper-batsman should not have gone public with any of his private chats.
