Ramachandra Guha resigned from the Committee of Administrators, which was appointed by the Supreme Court to implement the Lodha panel recommendations on the Board of Control for Cricket in India. The panel includes Vinod Rai, the former auditor general of India; former cricketer Diana Edulji, and Vikram Limaye, the managing director and CEO of IDFC Limited.
The Supreme Court will hear Guha's plea to relieve him on July 14. The historian has cited personal reasons for his resignation.
Guha's resignation comes at a time when the CoA is expected to make a number of big decisions, including the future of the BCCI and the Indian cricket team. Also, the task of the CoA, which was to fully implement the Lodha Committee-recommended reforms, has still not been completed. So everything has just got a lot more difficult for the remaining members of the CoA.
Guha's resignation has just made things worse for Indian cricket administration, which is undergoing a tough time.
Recently, the BCCI invited applications for a new Indian coach but the present gaffer is a direct entrant to the process. However, latest reports regarding the rift between the coach and the Indian players has revealed a sorry state of affairs in Indian cricket.
