new Delhi: Virender Sehwag, known for his impeccable style, has stood openly in support of Indian wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha. The former explosive opener of Team India was seen giving courage to Saha on social media. On Saha’s tweet, Sehwag wrote, ‘Dear Riddhi, it is not your nature to harm others. You are a wonderful person, but to prevent such harm to someone else in the future, it is important for you to take his name. Take a deep breath, and say the name. In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Saha said he would not reveal the name of the journalist who sent him the threat message on “humanitarian grounds”. Saha tweeted, ‘I was saddened and hurt by this. I thought this kind of behavior should not be tolerated and I did not want anyone to face such intimidation. I decided that I will disclose the chat to the public, but will not reveal its name.’ He said, ‘It is not in my nature to harm anyone to the extent of ending one’s career. So looking at his family on humanitarian grounds, I am not revealing the name at the moment. But if such a recurrence happens, I will not hold back. I thank all those who supported me and expressed their desire to help in this matter. On this tweet of Saha, Sehwag gave his reaction. The 37-year-old wicketkeeper has played 40 Tests since making his debut in 2010. Saha has been dropped for the home series (Test) against Sri Lanka and is unlikely to be considered for future selection. The Indian team management wants to groom a young player as a backup wicketkeeper. Now the BCCI said on Monday that it will investigate the matter.
