Sourav Ganguly May Lose His BCCI President Post, Roger Binny In Line To Succeed Ganguly

Sourav Ganguly may lose his position as chairman of BCCI, Roger Binny lining up to succeed Ganguly: Current Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly would lose his coveted post in the future as he is supposedly replaced by 1983 World Cup winner Roger Binny. The rumors arose when Roger Binny’s name appeared on the BCCI draft ballots.

Notably, new BCCI elections will be held on October 18 to elect the members for the coveted positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and Co-Secretary. Nominations for the above posts must be completed on 11 and 12 October.

Roger Binny, who was part of India’s first World Cup win in 1983, is currently the president of the Karnataka Cricket Association (KCA). His name appeared on the list of persons who will attend the upcoming General Meeting (AGM) on behalf of the KCA.

“Previously, Santosh Menon of KSCA would represent the KSCA in the BCCI AGM. But Binny will represent the Karnataka unit this time, while Sourav Ganguly will represent the Cricket Association of Bengal,” a report in Sportstar said.

It has been learned that an extensive and crucial meeting was held on Thursday between the current BCCI directors and a few former office holders to decide on the next office holders of the world’s richest cricket board.
