Roger Binny, the all-rounder member of the Indian World Cup-winning team, will now be the new President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). He has been appointed as the 36th President of BCCI. Roger will change the place of the previous Indian Captain Sourav Ganguly.
Former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly handled the final stint as the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) with great dignity. Let us tell you that there was a clear expression of despair on his face after Ganguly was denied a second term as the President in the conduct of the proceedings of the Annual General Meeting (AGM). However, he is often smiling and with a very strong sense of humor.
Congratulating all-rounder Roger Binny, Sourav Ganguly said, “I wish Roger Binny all the best. The new group will take this forward. BCCI is in good hands. Indian cricket is strong, so I wish him all the best.” Talking to a news agency after stepping down from the post of President in 2010, Ganguly had described Binny as the hero of the World Cup. In the AGM hall, Sourav Ganguly addressed Roger Binny as a World Cup hero.
Binny later demanded that his attention would be on the wellness of the players and the nature of the pitches. Binny said in the media preparation after the AGM, I need to zero in basically on two things. The first is the counteraction of players’ wounds. Jasprit Bumrah got harmed not long before the World Cup, which impacted the entire arrangement. Also Read: T20 World Cup, Ind vs Aus warm-up match highlights, 20th over of Shami
He further said- Second, I want to focus on the country’s pitches. All wicket pitches in India should be lively and that’s why it helps our players a lot when we go abroad. We have to sit down and discuss what is going wrong. India has excellent trainers, physios, and more. There are other experts too, but when we talk to them, we need to know why so many players are getting injured on the field.
1983-World Cup winner Binny said his imminent plan would also include a great structure that would suit observers well. The AGM has chosen to create a Board of Trustees on a foundation of various grounds, with state-of-the-art offices for each participant, primarily guests. Later addressing reporters, Roger Binny said,
