Every captain has a different way of working, says Roger Binny, BCCI chief Cricket News


CHENNAI: BCCI president Roger Inside on Friday refused to compare the captaincy of current skipper Rohit Sharma with the likes of Kapil Dev and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, saying each of them had a different way of leading the national team.
“Rohit is an experienced player. He has played so many matches and been in so many situations. Everyone has a different approach. Dhoni is totally different, you can’t compare him, Kapil or Gavaskar. Everyone has a different way of how they work,” he said.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the 90th annual day of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association here, the former India cricketer said if the openers provide a strong start, there is a better chance of the team winning matches.
“The power play is one of the important areas. I think the openers have to give us a strong start. If we get that good start, there is a better chance to win. Any team is comfortable chasing, they are not lucky to bat first.
“Most teams prefer to chase down the total because the wickets are like that, it gets slower and slower as the game goes on,” Binny said in response to a query about what the batsmen’s approach should be during the showdown.
Regarding a number of Indian players like ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah who have picked up injuries lately, he said: “We just want to find out why they’re getting injured. What the reason is. We can’t stop it. We have to find out if it’s overload, if players are not fit, and if their exercise needs to be changed.
“A lot of players get injured during training. It’s not a good thing,” he added.
On the women’s IPL scheduled to start from next year, Binny, who recently took over as the BCCI chief, said: “Everything was in place and they had to hold the auction.
“Even the franchises have also come. Now we just have to sit and finally do the auction. The thought process is that we will have five foreigners instead of four. That will be the extra addition to the IPL. We have not finalized yet. ..it will be done in January,” he added.
Asked about Indian teams that have done well in ICC events over the years but failed to win them, Binny said they (teams) have done well and reached the quarter-finals and semi-finals.
“I hope this is an exception (the team goes on to win the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia. We were close…made the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals. In T20 cricket, we have to be good on the given day …,” he added.
On the possibility of India touring Pakistan in the future, he said: “The BCCI had no say in the matter and it was up to the government.”
Speaking at the function earlier, Binny lauded the TNCA for providing quality infrastructure and facilities to cricketers and said it was probably the best-run association in the country.
He gave away awards to players who excelled at various levels.
