The ongoing battle between Wriddhiman Saha and the journalist has taken a new turn. It all started with Saha posting a screenshot of a Whatsapp chat between him and the journalist on Twitter. The wicketkeeper batter had alleged that the latter had threatened him after he refused a call for an interview. Netizens stood up for the 37-year-old and started thrashing the journalist.

Notably, when the Siliguri-born player was asked whether he will make the name of a journalist public, he said that he doesn’t want to ruin the career of that person. The 40-Test player had also said that he won’t take the name in front of the Board Of Control for Cricket In India (BCCI) officials.

However, in a meeting with the BCCI officials, Saha has revealed the name. The BCCI officials consisting of vice-president Rajeev Shukla, treasurer Arun Dhumal and IPL governing council member Prabhtej Bhatia have informed the media about the meeting but haven’t given any details of the journalist.

In the interesting turn of events, senior journalist Boria Majumdar has uploaded a video on Twitter claiming that the screenshots were doctored and his lawyers are sending the defamation notice to the cricketer.

“There are always two sides to a story. @Wriddhipops has doctored, tampered screenshots of my WhatsApp chats which have damaged my reputation and credibility. I have requested the @BCCI for a fair hearing. My lawyers are serving @Wriddhipops a defamation notice. Let truth prevail,” Majumdar captioned the video.

Majumdar also claimed that the manager of the cricketer approached him for an interview. He added that the interview was slotted after the Indian T20 League mega auction.
