Former Indian international Roger Binny has been appointed as the next BCCI president following the 91st Annual General Meeting yesterday.
The former World Cup winner has replaced Sourav Ganguly at the helm.
Meanwhile, Jay Shah will continue in his role for the foreseeable future and he has sent out a strong statement regarding the upcoming Asia Cup 2023. Shah claimed that India will not travel to Pakistan for the marquee event next year.
Ganguly has now shared his thoughts on his replacement before embarking on a new journey.
The former Indian captain wished Binny well and revealed that Indian cricket is in strong hands and he expects the new group to take the country forward.
Sourav Ganguly said to India Today:
"I wish Roger Binny all the best. The new group will take this forward. BCCI is in great hands. Indian cricket is strong so I wish them all the luck."
Earlier this summer, it was expected that Ganguly would continue to helm BCCI after the BCCI rewrote their code of ethics to let the former Indian left-hander continue his term after he had served his initial three years in the post.
Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see the growth of Indian cricket under the leadership of Roger Binny.
Binny has revealed that he will look to focus on the persistent injury issues of the Indian players and he will look to work on improving the pitches in the country as well.
