Historian and author Ramachandra Guha on Thursday resigned from BCCI’s panel of administrators. Guha was appointed to BCCI’s panel of administrators by the Supreme Court in January this year. Guha said that he has tendered his resignation to Chairman of BCCI’s Committee of Administrators Vinod Rai, who was appointed by the apex court.

Guha, one of the administrators of BCCI, has reportedly told the Supreme Court that he has resigned from the post. The historian has cited personal reasons with respect to his resignation while the Supreme Court has asked him to file a plea with the registry which would be taken up in July.

The Supreme Court appointed new administrators to spearhead the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after the ouster of BCCI chief Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke. Historian Ramachandra Guha, former CAG Vinod Rai, former Indian women cricketer Diana Edulji, and banker Vikram Limaye, were appointed as the new members of the cricket panel. Guha is an eminent historian. His fields of interest are known to include politics, sociology, environment and cricket history.

    Mr. Ramachandra Guha, one of the finest intellectuals of our time, has indeed been an odd man out in the BCCI’s panel of administrators. He quit on time. He will always remain a welcome personality in all the free-thinking circles - national as well as international.

      Guha was an odd man included for strange unexplicable factors. He should not have accepted the SC offer in the first place. Good to see him resign.

        This crook's appointment to the position in the first place indicates how distorted reality had become under the long curse of corrupt Congressis and their sympathizers.

          Good Riddence. He is unfit to hold any office of any significance. He is the sympathiser of hi family. He would have simphoned off money from BCCI and supplied money to his. Thank god for getting rid of this thug.

              Another eminent "la la land" leftist intellectual who think only they understand the "idea of India", totally oblivious of the rampant corruption, nepotism of the last 60 years and the squalor in which millions of Indians live !

                Good that he has resigned. He is no historian he is just a slave of Nehru family with a leftist mindset that's all. He does not understand the present Progressive India. He feels that India is just a country happy with slave mindset.

                  Yeah he will get his credibility back when he will start glorifying Hindu Mahasabha and turn the national coward and traitor Savarkar into most courageous freedom fighter who single-handedly won India its freedom.

                    No, Mullah. To win some credibility he has to merely stop being a completely dishonest and lying slave of Nehruddin and India-hating Mullah like you.

                  A person with track record in cricket (and a dubious one in history) was appointed to the highest cricket body. The only thing left to do is to field the judges on the cricket play ground – after all the lords seems to think that they are experts at everything (except, of course, the law).
