BCCI gets new administrators to oversee daily operations

India Today logo India Today 30-01-2017

The Supreme Court on Monday named a four-member committee to oversee the daily operations of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The committee, which includes historian Ramachandra Guha, Vikram Limaye, Managing Director and CEO of IDFC, Diana Edulji, former India women's Test cricketer, will be headed by Vinod Rai, former Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG).

The apex court bench, headed by Justice Dipak Mishra, also directed the CEO of BCCI, Rahul Johri, to report to the panel of administrators.

It was also decided that Limaye and BCCI joint secretary Amitabh Choudhary will represent BCCI in the International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting likely to be held in first week of February.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court also deferred the suggestion of the Centre that the Sports Secretary should be appointed in the panel of administrators.

The apex court has asked BCCI to submit a list of the recommendations which have been implemented to the newly appointed administrators.

It also asked Amicus Curiae Anil Diwan and Gopal Subramanium to submit the Lodha Panel recommendations and their report on the implementation so far. The Court also noted that the appointment of a government servant would amount to interference.

Former India cricketer Kirti Azad hailed the appointment of the panel. "Most importantly, the cozy council will have nothing to do with administration and financial management of cricket," he told India Today.
