BCCI President Roger Binny: "Can't Have Jasprit Bumrah Crying 10 Days Before World Cup"

“You can’t have a Jasprit Bumrah breaking down ten days before the World Cup,” said newly elected BCCI president Roger Binny on Thursday, reiterating the urgent need to address players being hurt regularly. Three days before the Indian team’s scheduled departure for Australia, Bumrah’s participation in the T20 World Cup was ruled out due to a back ailment. Mohammad Shami was fighting COVID-19 at the same time. Therefore the BCCI waited until the very last minute to identify him as Bumrah’s substitute. After taking over as BCCI chairman on Tuesday, Binny addressed this subject. “We must figure out why and how our guys suffer such severe injuries. We must figure out why they are breaking down so easily. Not just now but also in the last five years,” Binny said at a felicitation ceremony organized by Karnataka State Cricket Association.

“Not that we lack competent coaches or trainers. Something needs to be done, regardless of how much work they put on or how many forms they are playing. My top priority is that.

“Ten days before the World Cup, a Bumrah cannot break down, leaving no one to step in. It’s crucial to confront it, “the 67-year-old remarked.

Better fields instead of central contracts for domestic players are needed.

Binny emphasized the significance of creating better wickets for domestic cricket and mentioned the Ranji Trophy’s standards.

“Still too passive, the wickets are unsuitable for quick bowlers. Infrastructure needs to be examined as well. When India plays in stadiums, 30–40 thousand supporters must be comfortable.”

In response to the demand for central contracts similar to those held by Indian cricketers for local players, he said: “The domestic players receive excellent care. They stay in excellent locations and have amazing amenities. Those (contracts) don’t seem to be currently necessary.” Ranji Trophy, the country’s top competition, has to be held to a higher standard. How many people were aware that the Irani Cup was taking place recently? That ought to change, “added he. He stated the following about the March Women’s IPL: “Unexpectedly, women’s cricket is expected to become quite popular despite not being as well-known as men’s cricket. In the past two years, the game has made enormous gains. The game has taken giant strides in the last two-three years. Hope a lot of people come to watch the tournament.”
