Description:
Roger Michael Humphrey Binny () (born 19 July 1955, Bangalore, Karnataka) is an Indian former cricket all-rounder who is best known for his impressive bowling performance in the 1983 Cricket World Cup where he was the highest wicket-taker (18 wickets), and in the 1985 World Series Cricket Championship in Australia where he repeated this feat (17 wickets).

Binny started his international career on his home ground, the KSCA Stadium in Bangalore in the first Test of the 1979 home series against Pakistan. Against bowlers of the calibre of Imran Khan and Sarfraz Nawaz, he performed creditably in his debut match scoring 46 runs. Viewers still remember the six he scored off an Imran Khan bouncer in the 5th Test of that series. He was a useful swing bowler and one of the better fielders in the Indian team of that time.

Somehow his Test career floundered, but he came into his own in the next World Cup. The wickets suited his medium-pace, and in tandem with Madan Lal, and led by the inspirational Kapil Dev, he helped India win their first World Cup title.

He was the first Anglo-Indian to play cricket for India . His son Stuart is following in his footsteps and played state cricket for Karnataka. Roger Binny is currently serving as an Office Bearer at the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA). He will be appearing as the in-house cricket expert for national news channel - NewsX, during the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup.
