A top BCCI official said to The Sunday Express on condition of anonymity, "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."

This incident started on 19 February when Saha shared a screenshot of the intimidating messages on social media. He did not mention any name; rather said he received it from a 'renowned journalist.' The message on the screenshot read, "You did not call. Never again will I interview you. I don't take insults kindly. And I will remember this." Saha posted it with a caption, "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."
