Binny replaces Ganguly as BCCI chief

World Cup winner Roger Binny was Tuesday appointed head of India's cricket board -- the sport's richest body -- replacing Sourav Ganguly after he was reportedly forced out in a political tussle.

Binny, 67, was elected president at a meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in Mumbai, where secretary Jay Shah won another term in office, vice-president Rajeev Shukla told reporters.

Meanwhile, India will insist on a neutral venue for next year's Asia Cup, that is scheduled to be held in Pakistan.
