Roger Binny, the newly elected president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in a media interaction revealed his plan of action for his tenure of the next three years. The 1983 World Cup winner revealed that he wants to focus on the prevention of injuries among cricketers and also aims to make better cricket pitches in India.
Now, it’s a known fact that Men in Blue have suffered a lot in recent years because of various types of injuries. In the 2019 ODI World Cup, the Indian team recorded multiple injuries which eventually cost them the title and in the 2022 T20 World Cup, the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja will miss the tournament because of their respective injuries. Thus, this is one pattern the new BCCI president wants to break in his tenure.
“As the BCCI president, I want to primarily focus on 2 things. First is the prevention of injuries to the players. Jasprit Bumrah got injured just before the World Cup, which affects the whole plan. Second, I want to focus on the pitches in the country,” Binny was quoted as saying by News18.
BCCI AGM approves Women’s IPL to commence from 2023
After much anticipation, the cricketing board of India has finally given the green signal to host the inaugural edition of Women’s IPL in 2023. As per reports, only five teams will be participating in the tournament next year as it aims to grow in future.
Even though the major decision is taken, the board is yet to finalise how teams will be sold to different franchises. The organisation is not ruling out a zonal-based competition as well. According to reports, everything will be decided in the upcoming General Meeting (GC) of BCCI.
It is also very unlikely that the board will send their candidate for ICC presidentship. As the last day to fill nominations is Thursday, October 20, there aren’t enough days left for BCCI to take such a major call.
