Historian Ramachandra Guha on 1 June 2017 resigned as member of the four-member Committee of Administrators (CoA) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India. Guha cited personal reasons for his resignation.
Following his resignation, the Supreme Court asked Guha to file plea in registry which will be taken up in the court in July 2017.
Guha’s resignation comes at a time when the Champions Trophy 2017 is about to kick start.
The Committee of Administrators headed by Vinod Rai was appointed by the Supreme Court in January 2017 to oversee BCCI administration after the BCCI showed reluctant to implement the Lodha panel report.
The other two members of the Committee are former Indian women’s cricket team captain Diana Edulji and IDFC Limited’s Managing Director Vikram Limaye.
As per the SC order, Rai, Guha, Edulji and Limaye were asked to function as the interim bosses of the BCCI and run its day-to-day administration until the Lodha Committee reforms are fully implemented and elections are held.
