New delhi,November 9: Roger Binny, the former India cricketer and a member of the national selection committee, has been removed from his post. Cracking a whip on the conflict of interest issue within Indian cricket, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has also removed Ravi Shastri, the Team India director, from the Indian Premier League (IPL) Governing Council.

Gagan Khoda, another former India cricket in the limited-overs format, replaces Rajinder Singh Hans in the selection panel.
