“Rohit is an experienced player. He has played so many matches and been in so many situations. Everyone has a different approach. Dhoni is completely different, you can’t compare him, Kapil or Gavaskar. Each has a different way of operating them,” he said. he.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the 90th annual Tamil Nadu Cricket Association here, the former Indian cricketer said if the openers got off to a strong start, there was a higher chance the team would win matches.
“The power play is one of the important areas. I think the openers should give us a strong start. When we have that good start, there is a higher chance of winning. Any team is comfortable to chase, they are not happy to hit first.”
“Most teams prefer to chase the total because the wickets are like that, it gets slower and slower as the game progresses,” Binny said in response to a question about what the batters’ approach should be during the power play.
Regarding some Indian players like ace pacer Jasper Bumrah who has been injured lately, he said: “We just want to know why they get injured. What the reason is. We can’t stop it. We need to find out if it’s overload, if players are not fit, and if their practice needs to be being changed.
“A lot of players get injured in training. It’s not good,” he added.
Speaking of the women’s IPL scheduled for next year, Binny, who recently took charge of BCCI, said: “Everything was in place and they had to lead the auction.
“Even the franchises have come too. Now we just have to sit down and finally do the auction. The thinking process is that we will have five foreigners instead of four. That will be the extra addition to the IPL. We are not done yet. . .it will happen in January,” he added.
When 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 made it to the quarter-finals and semi-finals.
“Hope it’s an exception (the team that is going to win the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia. We’ve been close… have reached the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals. In T20 cricket we have to be good in the given day …”, he added.
On the possibility of India touring Pakistan in the future, he said: “The BCCI had nothing to say on the matter and it was up to the government.”
Speaking earlier at the function, Binny praised the TNCA for providing cricketers with quality infrastructure and facilities and said it was probably the best run association in the country.
He gave away prizes to players who shone at different levels.
