Roger Binny, a former star of the Indian cricket team and a member of the 1983 World Cup winning team, is likely to be the next BCCI president, replacing Sourav Ganguly, sources told NDTV. Binny currently serves as an officer in the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA). He was previously a member of the BCCI selection committee. The name of Ganguly, a former Indian captain who became BCCI president in October 2019, is likely to be discussed as the next International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman, the sources added.

The BCCI elections will take place in Mumbai on October 18th, while nominations for them can be submitted on October 11th and 12th. Nominations will be reviewed on October 13th and candidates have until October 14th to withdraw their nominations.

Sources say Jay Shah is likely to remain BCCI secretary and could represent India at the ICC. The sources further added that Rajeev Shukla is the frontrunner on the road to becoming the next BCCI vice president. Assam Cricket Association secretary Debojit Saikia is likely to run for the post of joint secretary alongside Rohan Jaitley, head of the Delhi and District Cricket Association. Ashish Selar and current BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal are likely to compete for the treasurer post. According to sources, Dhumal’s name is also under discussion as the next IPL chairman.

Former ANI news agency reported that Binny’s name appeared on BCCI’s draft electoral lists (posted on the BCCI website) for the Oct. 18 elections and annual general meeting as a representative of Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) on Thursday, replacing KSCA Secretary Santosh Meno. All of this led to speculation that the former Naher was the front runner for BCCI President.
