Mumbai: After being dropped from the Indian Test side, veteran wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha revealed on Saturday that Rahul Dravid-headed team management had told him to think about “retirement” as he won’t be considered for selection henceforth.

News agency PTI reported on February 8 that Wriddhiman has pulled out of Ranji Trophy as he has been told that he won’t be picked for the Indian team.

“The team management had told me that I would not be considered henceforth. I could not tell this so long as I was part of the India team setup,” Wriddhiman told reporters on Saturday.

“Even coach Rahul Dravid suggested that I think about taking retirement,” he spilled the beans.

The wicketkeeper also hit out at the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly, whom he claimed had assured him that he shouldn’t worry about his place in the Indian team.

“When I hit an unbeaten 61 taking a pain-killer in the first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur last November, Dadi (as Sourav was referred to by Bengal players) congratulated me over WhatsApp.

“He even mentioned that I should not worry about anything so long as he is at the helm of the BCCI. Such a message from the board president really boosted my confidence. But I failed to understand why everything changed so fast,” Wriddhiman added.
