Indian cricket is in for winds of change as the regime of Sourav Ganguly is about to end. The former India skipper took over as the BCCI president when the tenure of COA of Vinod Rai and Diana Eduljee ended. The entire tenure of Sourav Ganguly began with a lot of hope but by the time the entire tenure ended there was widespread controversy. Ganguly will be replaced by former Indian player and world cup winner and former selector Roger Binny.
The story so far –
BCCI is the richest cricket board in the world, and the top job comes with a lot of pitfalls and responsibilities. Sourav Ganguly the former Indian captain’s name wasn’t proposed by the members for the 2nd term. It came to light he was offered the job and role of IPL chairman which he said no to the job.
Ganguly’s funny dig at Roger Binny –
Sourav Ganguly was part of a function when there was a video clip of Ganguly was shown. The incident in question happened during the 2014 tour of England, when India saw Harsha Bhogle join former India team mates Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly. Rahul Dravid had poked the bear when he spoke about Ganguly’s bowling and the Bengal Tiger was seen defending his case.
At the end of the clip, there was a round of applause. Before the compere could ask Ganguly a question, the former Indian captain was quick to say “by the way that Binny is not Roger Binny. That’s Stuart Binny”
Ganguly’s last stint with Indian team and administration –
Sourav Ganguly gave a hint to his future when he said that he was venturing into something different. The former India captain was hurt by his name not being put forward to the post of ICC chairman by BCCI. Ganguly said that he had been a player, followed by becoming the Indian captain. Ganguly then became the CAB administrator before becoming the BCCI chief.
Roger Binny the new BCCI chief –
Roger Binny the former member of the Indian team which won the 1983 world cup will now be the new BCCI chief. Binny’s son Stuart played a few games for India making his debut in 2014 and played for few years. Roger was also the former chief of selector and will now step to take the topmost job in the cricketing world.
