Roger Binny succeeds Sourav Ganguly as new BCCI president

Mumbai: Roger Binny, a former all-rounder for India, was elected on Tuesday to lead the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) during its 91st Annual General Meeting.

Binny, a member of the 1983 World Cup-winning squad, took over from Sourav Ganguly.

Binny, who is 67 years old, has extensive knowledge of running a cricket organisation. Over the years, he held various posts at the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA), and as of 2019, he serves as its president. He has previously served in the Patel and Anil Kumble-led KSCA administrations before that (2010-12).

Along with Binny, there are two first-timers in the new administration -- Ashish Shelar and Devajit Saikia. The Maharashtra BJP leader Ashish Shelar who served as Mumbai Cricket Association president between 2017 and 2019, has become the treasurer while Saikia is the new joint secretary.

Meanwhile, Jay Shah, son of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, was elected as the BCCI Secretary for a second consecutive term. The Congress leader Rajiv Shukla was also re-elected as the board's vice president.

According to a press release by the board, the members of the General Body appreciated the efforts of the outgoing office bearers.

"The members of the General Body appreciated the efforts of the outgoing office bearers, IPL Governing Council Chairman and members, and Councillors for the work undertaken in their term," the BCCI said.

Another key appointment was of Sports Minister Anurag Thakur's younger brother Arun Singh Dhumal, who took over as the new IPL chairman. Also joining the governing council is Avishek Dalmiya, son of former BCCI and ICC bigwig Jagmohan Dalimya.

During the AGM, other key decisions like approval to conduct the Women's Indian Premier League and finalising the Future Tour Program were also taken.
