According to multiple reports, Sourav Ganguly is all set to be removed as BCCI President and he will be replaced by none other than veteran Roger Binny, one of India’s 1983 World Cup-winning players. Ganguly became the BCCI President in 2019 after working for four years at the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) in the same position as well. On Thursday, when he was asked about his reactions to recent reports regarding his administrative career, Ganguly replied he ‘can’t be an administrator forever” and that ‘rejections’ are part of life as well.

That’s Stuart Binny.” And, the anchor also replied, “Very important point to make, especially on this day.”
