New Delhi: Roger Binny is likely to replace Kris Srikkanth to become the chief selector of Indian Cricket team.
According to a report by Cricket Country.com it is almost certain that Amarnath will not remain as a selector anymore and Binny is the first choice of BCCI to anchor the Indian team's next phase.
Report further states that Binny close contacts with KSCA — president Anil Kumble and secretary Javagal Srinath Srinath — have been 'sounded' about Binny’s likelihood of 'being the next chief selector'.
Binny is best known for his impressive bowling performance in the 1983 Cricket World Cup where he was the highest wicket-taker (18 wickets), and in the 1985 World Series Cricket Championship in Australia where he repeated this feat (17 wickets). He was the first Anglo-Indian to play cricket for India.
