    President Roger Binny receives a conflict of interest notice from BCCI ethics officer Vineet Saran.


    Roger Binny, the current board president, has received a conflict of interest notice from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) ethics officer Vineet Saran. According to sources, Binny must respond in writing by December 20 to dispute the accusations made against him and demonstrate that they are untrue.

    Sanjeev Gupta, who filed the complaint, said that Mayanti Langer, a well-known sports presenter, and Roger Binny’s daughter-in-law both work for Star Sports, the official media partner for India cricket’s domestic season. “You are hereby informed that a complaint has been received under Rule 39(2)(b) of the Rules and Regulations of BCCI by the Ethics Officer, BCCI for breach of Rule 38 (1) (i) and Rule 38(2) of the said rules, constituting an instance of “conflict of interest” on your part.

    “You are directed to file your Written Response to the accompanying complaint on or before 20/12/2022. The said response should be supported by a duly executed affidavit,” wrote Saran in the notice dated November 21. The 1983 World Cup champion was chosen to lead the BCCI on October 18 during the annual general meeting (AGM) of the national cricket body, which was held in Mumbai. He took over for the late Sourav Ganguly as the 36th BCCI president.

    Binny and his team would now need to devise a plan to determine how the Men in Blue can withstand the pressure during ICC knockouts and persevere to end their title drought that has been troubling them since 2013. This is because the Indian team struggled in the ICC T20 World Cup semifinals in Australia in 2022. The ICC has two events planned for the following year. The ODI World Cup in India in October-November and the World Test Championship final in June. It is also unclear whether the performances of captain Rohit Sharma and the current head coach Rahul Dravid will be closely scrutinised going forward.
