Following the recent events surrounding Wriddhiman Saha’s controversial tweet, the BCCI intends to hire an agency to investigate all such matters. Only a few days ago, wicketkeeper-batsman Saha rushed to Twitter to notify the world that he had been intimidated by a journalist over phone messages for an interview. After years of service to Indian cricket, Saha seemed taken aback by the messages he received, adding to his post that this is not what he expected. Following the incident, a number of cricketers came out in support of Saha and publicly chastised the reporter involved.

“This is what I get from a so-called respected journalist after all of my contributions to Indian cricket! This is where journalism has gone,” tweeted Saha. However, it has now been reported that the BCCI is planning to hire an agency to handle all such matters and that other cricketers’ complaints should also be investigated. Many cricketers have reportedly moved to the BCCI to reflect on their experiences with Indian media, according to reports. If the board agrees in this case, an external agency will be formed specifically to deal with such problems.

“It’s not just about Saha. Every participant must be heard. You’ll need a neutral third party to carry out this process. However, you would first need the approval of every investor,” a BCCI insider told TOI.

“There have been players who have expressed their dissatisfaction with the media’s portrayal of them to certain officials. Each of them must be investigated. Even ex-coaches and support workers must be contacted. If everyone is on board, an agency might be recruited to interview everyone and come up with a clear picture,” the person stated.
