Former CAG Vinod Rai Appointed as BCCI Head by Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Monday announced that former CAG Vinod Rai has now been as BCCI head in India along with Ramachandra Guha and Vikram Limaye.

Former India women’s cricketer Diana Edulji will also set be a part of the administrative panel.

The apex court, meanwhile, rejected Centre's plea to elect secretary of sports ministry as part of the BCCI committee.

SC also said that "Amitabh Chaudhary of BCCI and Vikram Limaye will represent BCCI at the International Cricket Council meeting in the first week of February while Anirudh Chaudhary shall be the third member to represent the Indian cricket board at the meeting of cricket's governing body."

Earlier, the Amicus Curiaes - Gopal Subramanian and Anil Diwan - had offered nine names to the apex court for the appointment of administrators in the cricketing body.

The apex court also asked the BCCI to execute the Justice Lodha panel suggestions into the game. It had suggested a slew of subjects in the gentleman's game.

The Supreme Court last week asked to reply from the Centre on a petition attempting to form a Lodha Panel-like committee, in line to look into the changes in other sports across the country.

The petition was heard by a three-judge bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice of India Jagdish Singh Khehar, asked the interference of the Supreme Court for a way to the Center to constitute a Lodha Panel-like committee.

The new committee would also look and probe if there is any kind of corruption and violations by anyone in any sport in the country.

Following charges of corruption, match fixing and betting scandals in cricket in the country, the Supreme Court appointed a three-panel member led by Justice RM Lodha in January 2015 to look into the working of the BCCI and recommend reforms.
