New Delhi: Inderjit Singh Bindra, who played a pivotal role in India hosting three World Cups, has decided to withdraw from cricket affairs and as a first step he is likely to hand over the reins of the Punjab Cricket Association to fellow-Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer D.P. Reddy.

Bindra, a former president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), says he has, in fact, overstayed a couple of years as he has always maintained that he would be quitting cricket administration when he turns 70.

"I am happy I am withdrawing from day-to-day running of the PCA affairs when the wonderful band of my colleagues still wants me to stay on," Bindra told IANS Friday.
