A lot of former cricketers, including ex-Indian team head coach Ravi Shastri, sympathised with Saha, but the latter refused to name the journalist in public.
On February 10, ahead of the IPL mega auction, Majumdar had sent some texts to the player via WhatsApp.
“After all of my contributions to Indian cricket..this is what I face from a so-called “Respected” journalist! This is where the journalism has gone.” - the tweet by Wriddhiman Saha sparked the controversy.
A series of texts was sent on February 13 also after Saha was roped in by Gujarat Titans on the second day of the auction.
Saha went unsold on Day One of the auction before getting his IPL contract the following day.
