- Has the best bowling performance in ODI cricket
- He was the captain of the Karnataka team.
- He played under the captaincy of Dhoni
Stuart Binny’s retirement announcement hasn’t made much of a difference in Indian cricket. Junior Binny started playing national cricket for Karnataka in the mid-2000s, but his early days were not good at all. Those were the days when the burden of being the children of the most famous parents seemed to drag Roger Binny’s son like Vivek Jayasinghe and Rohan Gavaskar out of nowhere. Stuart Binny still remembers with gratitude the time when he felt the need to sign the Indian Cricket League in 2007.
He couldn’t have a particular impact on the multi-day format, but he was able to make his mark on the Indian cricket world through the ICL. When the ICL was stopped, the Mumbai Indians did not abandon Binny along with Ambati Rayudu, then nicknamed Junior Tendulkar.
The words of the real Sourav Ganguly when Binny retired were “Binny’s contribution to cricket will be spelled in gold letters”, enough to measure his hard work. Had he been able to be a part of the team in Ganguly’s golden age, he probably would have been known in Indian cricket as a good all-rounder like his father. But what Binny kept for a long time was an invaluable record. The record of 0️6 / 0️4, the best bowling performance in ODI cricket, which could not be beaten by any other Indian batsman, was also saved with India’s 105-run hit against Bangladesh.
17 years in national cricket has never been a short time, and 4,796 runs and 148 wickets in 95 games has never been easier. Also, Binny, who scored 87 on his test debut in England and played some good innings in the IPL, could have been another Roger Binny in Indian cricket had he been a bit lucky.
