The Supreme Court has appointed four administrators to manage the Board Control of Cricket in India(BCCI).

The list includes former women's cricket team captain Diana Edulji, historian Ramchandra Guha, managing director of Infrastructure Development Finance Company Ltd (IDFC) Vikram Limaya and Vinod Rai.

Former Comptroller and Auditor General of India Vinod Rai will head the panel. 

Amitabh Chaudhary of BCCI and Vikram Limaye will represent the BCCI at the International Cricket Committee meeting in the first week of February, the Supreme Court added.

The apex court rejected Centre's plea to appoint secretary of sports ministry as one of the administrators. 

 

The Supreme Court had on January 2 removed ex-president Anurag Thakur and former secretary Ajay Shirke of the BCCI for trying to hinder the smooth implementation of the Lodha panel's recommendations.

India's highest court had also decided to initiate contempt proceedings against ex-president Thakur.
