Stuart Binny’s contribution to Karnataka Cricket is immeasurable, says Sourav Ganguly

Former India captain and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has praised all-rounder Stuart Binny for his tremendous contribution to the Karnataka State Cricket Association during his 17-year first-class career. Binny announced his retirement from all formats of the game on Monday, August 30.

Stuart Binny was praised for his performance after the all-rounder announced on Monday that he would retire from all forms of the game.

In the 95 First-Class games he played, he scored 4,796 runs and took 148 wickets. He was part of the Karnataka team that won the 2013-14 Ranji Trophy.

Stuart has represented India in 23 international competitions – six Tests, three T20Is and fourteen ODIs. His most notable achievement was when he won a staggering 6/4 in an ODI against Bangladesh in 2014, which are India’s best bowling figures in the format to date.

Sourav Ganguly was one of many to praise the 36-year-old for his achievements throughout his career.

“I want to wish Stuart Binny all the best for his future endeavours. He has had a long career. First-class cricket is the foundation for a good international set-up and Stuart has made a huge contribution to that. His contribution to the Karnataka State Cricket Association, which has produced so many famous players, will be written in golden letters. I wish him all the success in his life,” Ganguly said in an official BCCI release.

BCCI Secretary Jay Shah also praised the all-rounder for his contributions in both national and international cricket.

“Stuart Binny has been a true servant of Indian cricket and the all-rounder has also contributed a lot in the domestic circuit. His dedication and sincerity to the game will be an inspiration to the future cricketers who want to pursue the game. I wish Stuart every success for the future,” said Jay Shah.

Stuart, a certified NCA level 2 coach, is all set to continue his coaching efforts into the future.
