Noted historian Ramchandra Guha resigned from the four-member Committee of Administrators (CoA) on Thursday. The Committee was appointed by the Supreme Court to implement the R.M. Lodha Committee recommendations on the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

According to reports, Guha has cited personal reasons for quitting the position. 

Guha was a member of the CoA that is headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India Vinod Rai. 

Former cricketer Diana Edulji and IDFC Limited Managing Director and CEO Vikram Limaye are the other members on the panel.

The CoA was appointed by the apex court on January 30, after the BCCI was reluctant to implement the Lodha panel recommendations.

The Supreme Court will hear Guha's plea to relieve him on July 14.
