Renowned sports presenter Mayanti Langer won’t be part of the upcoming IPL season, broadcaster Star Sports confirmed on Thursday (September 17).
The reason behind Mayanti's absence has been announced by the sports presenter herself on Twitter. She gave birth to a baby boy almost six weeks back and that is the reason why she cannot be a part of the broadcasting team in this edition of the tournament. She posted a picture with the baby and her husband Stuart Binny.
Meanwhile, she also slammed media speculations on Friday (September 18) over her non-appearance in the marquee tournament. Mayanti also took a media outlet to task for stating that her replacement has been announced by the official broadcaster.
Here’s Mayanti Langer’s tweet.
