Profile

A versatile allrounder, Roger Binny proved his value to the Indian team in both Test cricket and the one-day game. He was capable of rescuing India, like he did while scoring 83 not out and sharing a record 155 run seventh-wicket partnership with Madan Lal against Pakistan at Bangalore in 1983. He was capable of bowling India to victory, as he did in taking seven wickets in the match at Headingley in 1986. Or when with a spell of 4 for 9 in 30 balls towards his best Test figures of 6 for 56, he pushed Pakistan to the wall at Calcutta in 1987. But there is no doubt that Binny's most outstanding feats were associated with limited overs cricket - and more specifically the 1983 World Cup. He played a leading role in India's victorious campaign taking 18 wickets, then the record in the competition.
