The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is expected to impose a two-year suspension on sports journalist Boria Majumdar, who was found guilty of intimidating experienced wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha over an interview. As a result, he will no longer be permitted to attend cricket stadiums and is unable to meet players.

This incident began in February of this year when Saha turned to social media and shared messages of threatening texts he got from a renowned journalist. Saha, who was displeased, captioned the post: "After all of my contributions to Indian cricket… this is what I face from a so-called ‘Respected’ journalist! This is where journalism has gone"

Following this, Saha received overwhelming support from cricketers and fans all over the world.
