The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

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.
