Conflict of interest: MSK Prasad replaces Roger Binny as national selector

Mumbai, Nov 9: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has started clean-up on conflict of interest issues. Among several major decisions taken today at the Indian cricket board's 86th Annual General Meeting (AGM), former India all-rounder Roger Binny was removed as senior selector and replaced with former wicketkeeper-batsman MSK Prasad.

Roger, who was part of the Indian team that won the 1983 World Cup, was on Monday (November 9) dropped as a selector due to conflict of interest. His son Stuart Binny is in the Indian team.

Roger, a South Zone selector, will vacate his place to Prasad, who is also from the same zone. Prasad, who played 6 Tests and 17 ODIs for India, is from Andhra Pradesh. The 40-year-old Prasad is set to take over from Binny in one of the two changes in the 5-man selection panel headed by Sandeep Patil.

Central Zone's selector Rajinder Hans was also removed and replaced by former India cricketer Gagan Khoda, who played 2 ODIs.

The 5 senior selectors are Vikram Rathore (North Zone), Sandeep Patil (Chairman, West Zone), Gagan Khoda (Central Zone), Prasad (South Zone) and Saba Karim (East Zone).
