Roger Binny, who was recently elected president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and took over from Sourav Ganguly, disclosed the two areas he will concentrate on most.
At the 91st Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the board on Tuesday, Binny, a former Indian pacer and 1983 World Cup champion were chosen as the BCCI president (October 18). The lone candidate that submitted a nomination for BCCI president was Binny.
As the BCCI president, I want to primarily focus on two things, said Roger Binny, according to ANI. The priority is protecting gamers from harm. Jasprit Bumrah’s injury just before the World Cup disrupted the entire plan of action. Second, I want to concentrate on the national pitches.
Notably, Rajeev Shukla and Devajit Saikia will take up the vice president and joint secretary positions of the board, respectively, while Jay Shah will continue to serve as the BCCI secretary. The new BCCI Treasurer, on the other hand, is Ashish Shelar.
Binny took 47 and 77 wickets in his respective roles as an India representative in 27 Tests and 72 ODIs. In the 1983 World Cup, he was one of the key players in India’s historic first World Cup victory and India’s leading wicket-taker with 18 wickets.
The new head of the Indian Cricket Board announced after his appointment on Tuesday that his main goal is to prevent injuries to the country’s players and fields. Binny went on to discuss how India’s preparations for the T20 World Cup in 2022 were impacted by Jasprit Bumrah’s unfortunate injury.
