BENGALURU: Famous cricket journalist and talk show host Boria Majumdar is likely to be banned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for two years, according to a report in a daily. The three-member committee, formed by the BCCI, has found him guilty of threatening Indian wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha for an interview.

The committee included the BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla, treasurer Arun Dhumal and apex council member Prabhtej Bhatia who probed Saha’s allegation.

According to the report, Majumdar will not be allowed inside cricket stadiums and won’t be given accreditation for India’s home matches.

On February 19, 2022, Saha shared a post on Twitter which read: “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.”

The post was accompanied by a screenshot which included messages which he had received from a journalist.

One of the messages said, “You did not call. Never again will I interview you. I don’t take insults kindly. And I will remember this.”

“We will be informing all state units of the Indian cricket board to not allow him inside stadiums. He won’t be given media accreditation for home matches and we will also be writing to ICC to blacklist him. Players will be asked not to engage with him,” a top BCCI official told the daily.

Saha did not name the journalist on Twitter but identified Majumdar while deposing before the committee.
