Roger Binny: Career

Roger Binny, or simply Binny, was an all-around cricketer who achieved fame for his bowling prowess. He led the tournament in wickets taken (18) in both the 1983 Cricket World Cup and the 1985 World Series Cricket Championship, both played in Australia (17 wickets).

Binny made his debut for India in the first Test of the 1979 home series against Pakistan at his hometown stadium, M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. In his first professional game, he scored 46 runs against bowlers of Imran Khan and Sarfraz Nawaz caliber. He was one of the better fielders for the Indian team at the time and a helpful swing bowler.

While his performance in the Test arena was less than stellar, he and fellow Pace bowler Karsan Ghavri were instrumental in removing the luster from the new ball so that India’s superstar bowlers could take over. Many close test matches for India were saved by Binny, Ghavri, and wicketkeeper Syed Kirmani. Binny could be counted on to keep the batting down, prevent innings losses, or squeak out a draw if the top batting order faltered. However, the World Cup was where Binny truly excelled. His medium pace was well suited to the wickets, and he and Madan Lal, under the leadership of the indomitable Kapil Dev, were instrumental in India’s first World Cup victory.

Currently, Binny is leading the Karnataka State Cricket Association as its President (KSCA). During the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, he was featured as NewsX’s resident cricket expert.
