A player a day seems to be the policy of the makers of Kabir Khan's 83. Following the release of Dinker Sharma as Kirti Azad, the latest player poster to arrive is that of Nishant Dahiya as Roger Binny. The film, 83, is set to release in theatres on 10 April 2020.

Meet the next devil, #RogerBinny! #ThisIs83@RanveerOfficial #NishantDahiya @kabirkhankk @deepikapadukone @SarkarShibasish @madmantena #SajidNadiadwala @vishinduri pic.twitter.com/t9gVbDqZgy
The poster features Dahiya as Binny in his bowling stride. A match-winning all-rounder, Roger Binny's performances in the 1983 World Cup ensured a successful tournament. Binny finished the 1983 world cup with 18 wickets, the highest for any bowler in the tournament.
It was Binny's bowling that saw the dangerous West Indian captain, Clive Lloyd, hook a catch to Kapil Dev, that changed India's fortune in the low-scoring final of the World Cup.
Kabir Khan's film will track the journey of the unheralded Indian cricket team, led by Kapil Dev, which won the 1983 cricket World Cup in England. The film will feature Ranveer Singh, as Kapil Dev, also with Saqib Saleem, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jatin Sarna, Ammy Virk, and Jiiva.
