Roger Binny who has been serving as the BCCI president at this moment got into trouble for her connection with Mayanti Langer. He was served with a CONFLICT of INTEREST notice by the board’s ethics officer Vineet Saran. He later had to submit a written response by December 20. The conflict is regarding Mayanta Langar’s association with Star Sports.
Sanjeev Gupta alleged that Roger Binny is conflicted since his daughter-in-law works for Star Sports. Star Sports holds the media rights to Indian cricket apart from telecasting the rights of IPL. Mayanti who’s been married to Stuart Binny has been a very successful anchor in Star Sports.
“You are hereby informed that a complaint has been received under Rule 39(2)(b) of the Rules and Regulations of BCCI by the Ethics Officer, BCCI. It is for breach of Rule 38 (1) (i) and Rule 38(2) of the said rules, constituting an instance of “conflict of interest” on your part. You are directed to file your Written Response to the accompanying complaint on or before 20/12/2022. The said response should be supported by a duly executed affidavit,” Vineet Saran wrote in the notice dated November 21.
Stuart Binny became the 36th BCCI president in October after replacing former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly. Professionally, he played 27 Tests and 72 ODIs for India.
Previously, Sanjeev Gupta sent such notices to Sourav Ganguly, Jay Shah, Arun Dhumal, Sachin Tendulkar, Anil Kumble, VVS Laxman, and even current head coach Rahul Dravid.
When Roger Binny’s son Stuart Binny used to play, Senior Binny was excluded from the selection meetings involving his son.
According to sources, he has been requested to provide a formal response by December 20 in response to a conflict of interest allegation made by Sanjeev Gupta. Mayanti Langer works for Star Sports, the IPL and India’s domestic matches’ official broadcasters.
