Former Indian allrounder, Roger Binny is all set to succeed BCCI president Sourav Ganguly. Reportedly, Roger Binny, who was also member of the 1983 World Cup winning team, will take charge on October 18 when the BCCI annual general meeting will be held in Mumbai.

According to reports, Indian cricketer and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was left 'dejected and disappointed' during the informal meeting ahead of the nomination process. Reports have also claimed that Ganguly was bluntly informed that members of the board are not pleased with his work and performances. 

Meanwhile, fresh reports have indicated that N Srinivasan, former Chairman of the International Cricket Council and former President of the BCCI, has emerged as one of the biggest critics of the current BCCI president and voiced his opinion with the members of the board while making a short stopover in Mumbai. Reportedly, Ganguly was eager to continue as the BCCI president, but failed to convince the members of the board due to which he could not get the required vote counts.

Reports have also claimed that Sourav Ganguly was offered IPL Chairman post but he voiced his wish on becoming ICC Chairman or counting as BCCI president, but Ganguly failed to get the confidence of members for both the position. "Roger Binny has filed the nomination for the president's post, myself for the vice-president post, Jay Shah for secretary, Ahshish Shelar for treasurer and Devajit Saikia has filed the nomination for the joint secretary's post," BCCI vice president Rajiv Shukla, told reporters.
