Roger Binny, former Indian cricketer, and 1983 World Cup winner has been appointed as the President of the BCCI. Binny has replaced Sourav Ganguly who served in the position for almost three years and has become only the 3rd person to achieve both playing international cricket for India and becoming the President of the BCCI.
Binny was appointed as the President unopposed at the Annual General Meeting of the BCCI which took place today at the Taj hotel in Mumbai. It shall be noted that there was no other name in contention for the post and it was known even before today’s meeting that Roger Binny will be the next President of the Board.
Sourav Ganguly on being deprived of BCCI’s support for the post of ICC Chairman is rumored to take up his second term as the President of the Cricket Association of Bengal. He refused the post of IPL chairman, confirming his exit from the BCCI. Jay Shah, on the other hand, is set to continue his term as the Secretary of the Board with Arun Dhumal becoming the IPL Chairman.
Roger Binny is the 36th BCCI President after former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly.
