Administrators to run BCCI named
NEW DELHI: A historian, a retired auditor and a financial executive were among four people named by India’s highest court yesterday to run the country’s cricket board (BCCI). Former India women’s captain Diana Edulji was the only administrator with direct cricket experience although historian and columnist Ramachandra Guha has written numerous books about the sport. The court appointed Vinod Rai, former comptroller and auditor general of India, and the Chief Executive of IDFC (Infrastructure Development Finance Corporation) Vikram Limaye as the other administrators to supervise BCCI operations. The committee of administrators, to be chaired by Rai, will take immediate charge and run the board in liaison with BCCI Chief Executive Rahul Johri until new officials are elected.
