A big controversy erupted when the Indian wicket-keeper batter Wridhimann Saha shared the screenshots of his conversation with journalist Boria Majumdar for using intimidatory language.
“You did not call; never again will I interview you. I don’t take insults kindly. And I will remember this. This wasn’t something ypu (you) should have done,” the screenshot read.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) swung into action and ordered a probe by a committee. Boria was banned for two years after being found guilty.
After months, Saha opened up on the controversy, revealing that Majumdar has also done such things in the past.
“My purpose was to show that journalist can go to any extent to get an interview of a player. I learned that he is a habitual offender, which is why the BCCI banned him. I didn’t speak initially because I am contracted with the BCCI,” Saha told Sports Today.
The 37-year-old added that Majumdar had no regrets, forcing him to go public with the screenshots.
“I also didn’t like coming out in the first place, but if the other person doesn’t even have any regret, how can you stay silent?” said Saha.
