Even if numerous sources have indicated since earlier this week that Sourav Ganguly is less likely to serve a second term as the president of the BCCI, he hasn’t lost his sense of humor. It has been generally believed that former India player and 1983 World Cup champion Roger Binny will take over for Ganguly in the position. Ganguly, 50, was appointed BCCI President in 2019 after serving in the same position for the Cricket Association of Bengal for four years.
At a promotional event, Ganguly discussed his life in great detail and relived some of the highlights of his playing and broadcasting careers. In one instance, Ganguly was shown a clip of his time spent on-air with Rahul Dravid and Harsha Bhogle. Dravid, who shared a dressing room with Ganguly for a significant portion of the latter’s career, pulled Ganguly’s leg by saying he wasn’t physically fit enough to bowl consistently.
Stuart Binny was bowling to Joe Root during a Test match between England and India as they were doing the commentary. After the clip had finished, Ganguly interrupted the anchor to make a somewhat witty comment.
That Binny is not Roger Binny, by the way. Stuart Binny is he During a Bandhan Bank-sponsored function, Ganguly made a statement. The audience members seated there burst out laughing at the comment.
I worked as a cricket player’s manager. Yes, you had to make choices since there was so much money and cricket going on. Domestic cricket and women’s cricket both exist. Yes, there were occasions when you had to answer calls on your own Added he.
