“I wish Roger Binny all the best. The new group will take this forward. BCCI is in great hands. Indian cricket is strong so I wish them all the luck,” said Ganguly. Ganguly's remarks have come at a time when BCCI secretary Jay Shah confirmed that Rohit Sharma-led Team India will not travel to Pakistan for Asia Cup 2023.

"Neutral venue for Asia Cup is not unprecedented and we have decided that we will not travel to Pakistan. It's the govt which decides over the permission of our team visiting Pakistan so we won't comment on that but for the 2023 Asia Cup, it is decided that the tournament will be held at a neutral venue," said BCCI secretary Shah, who is also the president of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC).

With a reported net worth of $2 billion, the richest cricket board in the world has appointed Binny as its 36th president. While Binny replaced Ganguly to become the new president, Shah has bagged another term in the office as the secretary of the BCCI.
