BCCI cracks the whip on conflict of interest


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.

While MSK Prasad, the former India wicket-keeper, replaces Binny as the South Zone selector in the committee, Jyotiraditya Scindia, a member of parliament, has been made part of the IPL Governing Council. Gagan Khoda, another former India cricket in the limited-overs format, replaces Rajinder Singh Hans in the selection panel.

In yet another major change, Sourav Ganguly, the former India skipper and the recently-appointed chief of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), has replaced Anil Kumble, former India Test captain, as the chairman of the BCCI technical committee.
