‘BCCI may ask Wriddhiman Saha for comments on selection issues’: Arun Dhumal on breach of central contract clause | locust

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to question Indian cricket veteran Wriddhiman Saha over his recent comments on BCCI chairman Sourav Ganguly, selectors chairman Chetan Sharma and head coach of the Rahul Dravid team regarding selection issues, which resulted in a central contract breach.

According to clause 6.3 of the BCCI central contract for players, “the player shall not make any comment on the game, the officials, incidents in the game, use of technology, selection matters or any other related matter play that is in the opinion of BCCI is adverse and/or not in the best interests of the game, the team or BCCI in any media…”

After being dropped from the test squad for the impending series against Sri Lanka at home, the 37-year-old wicket-beater keeper had told the media about his conversation with Ganguly after the hit against New Zealand, the suggestion of Dravid’s “retirement” and the conversation he had with Chetan prior to the team announcement.

“Yes, it is possible that the BCCI will ask Wriddhiman how he talked about selection matters as a centrally contracted cricketer. As for the chairman, he had tried to motivate him. The board might like to know what which made him go public with his locker room conversations with coach Dravid,” BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal told PTI on Thursday.

Dhumal added, however, that the BCCI is yet to take an appeal on the matter in “a few days”.

Wriddhiman revealed earlier that Ganguly had ‘secured him a place in the test team as long as he was the boss of BCCI’ despite the team’s management telling him that he ‘would not be considered from now on. “.

He last played for India in the Test series against New Zealand at home last November, where he battled neck pain to score a valiant 61. While traveling with the team on the South Africa tour, Rishabh Pant was the first-choice wicket-keeper. And the selectors chose KS Bharat to replace him in the Sri Lanka series.
