In­dia’s Supreme Court ap­pointed a top anti-cor­rup­tion trou­bleshooter as head of a team to over­see the run­ning of the coun­try’s pow­er­ful cricket board af­ter dis­miss­ing its top of­fi­cials for fail­ing to im­ple­ment re­forms. For­mer gov­ern­ment au­di­tor Vinod Rai will head the com­mit­tee to run the Board of Con­trol for Cricket in In­dia (BCCI). Join­inghim are his­to­rian Ra­machan­dra Guha, banker Vikram Li­maye and for­mer In­dian women’s cricket cap­tain Diana Edulji. It was not clear how long the four would be in place or their ex­act ti­tles. “I think it’s a huge, huge re­spon­si­bil­ity put on my shoul­ders,” Edulji said. “Be­ing the only crick­eter – male or fe­male – I think I have to re­ally put my head into it and think about its future.”
