Journalist Boria Majumdar likely to face 2 years ban in Wriddhiman Saha text case

Wriddhiman Saha accused journalist name Revealed!

The saga between veteran wicketkeeper batter Wriddhiman Saha and his accused journalist is not willing to settle down as the cricketer has informed that he has already opened up all the details of the chats and threatening messages he received from the journalist.

Saha on March 5 said that he has disclosed the name of the journalist and all the chats to the three-member probing committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

‘I have told the committee everything I know. I have shared all the details with them. I can’t tell you much right now. BCCI has asked me not to talk about the meeting outside as they will answer all your queries,” Saha told reporters after appearing before the three-member probing committee of the BCCI.

Later on the same day, senior journalist Boria Majumdar himself identified as the one accused by Wriddhiman Saha on a Twitter video. 

Meanwhile, Boria Majumdar has defended himself by saying that Wriddhiman, who is a friend of him for long 12 years, has “doctored and fabricated the WhatsApp screenshots to garner public sympathy”.

The senior journalist, who has interviewed hundreds of sportspeople in the past, also said that he and his lawyer will serve a defamation suit against the cricketer.

Saha, who is a centrally contracted player of the BCCI, earlier through a series of tweets exposed the unnamed journalist following which the cricket board took action and formed a probing committee.

The outburst took place soon after BCCI announced India’s squad for two matches test series against Sri Lanka and Wriddhiman Saha was not named in the team. The cricketer also revealed some of the classified dressing room conversations with Rahul Dravid.

Later Saha also opened up that the chairman of selectors, Chetan Sharma, said that they are no longer considering him for the national selection on the test side.

Meanwhile, the BCCI is investigating the matter thoroughly and journalist Boria Majumdar has requested the cricket board’s formed committee to listen to his side of the story too.
