Guha’s counsel informed a vacation bench of Justices M Shantanagoudar and Deepak Gupta that he had submitted his resignation on May 28 to Vinod Rai, Chairman of the Committee of Administrators of the BCCI.

Ramachandra Guha, the eminent historian who was appointed as one of the four administrators of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on Thursday apprised the court about his resignation due to personal reasons.

Guha’s counsel, Rakesh Sinha informed a vacation bench of Justices M Shantanagoudar and Deepak Gupta that he had submitted his resignation on May 28 to Vinod Rai, Chairman of the Committee of Administrators of the BCCI.

The court replied to this submission that a special bench was seized of the matter and the plea should therefore be filed in the registry.

Sinha said that he has filed the petition to inform the court about the historian’s resignation as the main matter would be coming up for hearing in July.

In January this year, the Supreme Court had appointed a four-member committee of administrators headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) Vinod Rai to run BCCI and implement the reforms recommended by Justice RS Lodha committee.

Vikram Limaye, Managing Director of Infrastructure Development Finance Company (IDFC), and former Indian women cricket captain Diana Edulji were the other members in the committee.
