The elections of the newly appointed office-bearers were all a formality as all were elected unopposed and the loud buzz since a few days before the AGM already had made the picture clear.

The former right-arm medium pacer, Mr Roger Binny played an invaluable role in Kapil Dev-led Indian side win their maiden title during the 1983 World Cup as he’d picked up 18 wickets and finished as the highest wicket-taker of the tournament. Mr Roger Binny previously served in the BCCI as a member of the national selection committee as well.

While, secretary, Jay Shah and vice-president, Rajeev Shukla have won a term extension, the exit of Sourav Ganguly has seen a political angle and reportedly it’s believed that his exit from the role has been forced after he’d opted against joining a particular party.
