Majumdar claimed on his behalf that Saha had “physicized” him before posting WhatsApp screenshots of the chat with him on social media, sparking a huge controversy.

Saha, a centrally contracted player, posted multiple tweets on February 23 against the then-unnamed journalist, who was Majumdar.

South Africa’s head coach Rahul Dravid told Saha that he had no plans for anything else and that the classified information was leaked by the cricketer himself.

Saha has played 40 Tests since his debut in 2010 and has been in the team as a reserve wicketkeeper for the last few years, with Rishabh Pant becoming the number one choice in all situations.
