Former India cricketer Roger Binny has been appointed as the new president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). He is the 36th president of the BCCI and will succeed Sourav Ganguly in the role. The official announcement was made on Tuesday, October 18, after the conclusion of the BCCI's Annual General Meeting.

Notably, the 67-year-old Roger Binny was the only contender for the presidential role. The election of the upcoming group of officeholders was merely a formality since they will all be elected without opposition. Binny, who most recently served as the president of the Karnataka State Cricket Association, will now vacate his post within the state organization.

Binny was a part of India's historic 1983 world cup winning squad and played a crucial role in leading India to a win. He recorded the most wickets in that year's premier event (18) in just eight games. When Sandeep Patil held the chairman's position, Binny had then served as a member of the senior selection committee.

According to the updated rules established by the Supreme Court, Ganguly, who assumed the job of BCCI president in 2019, was qualified for an extension. He apparently didn't receive support from other members, though. It is believed that after his discussions with the stakeholders, he learned that a second term is still improbable.
