The Supreme Court on Monday appointed a four-member committee of administrators, headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) Vinod Rai, to run the affairs of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The bench of Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.W. Chandrachud said the other members of the committee are historian Ramchandra Guha, managing director & CEO of Infrastructure Development Finance Company (IDFC) Vikram Limaye and former women's cricket captain Diana Edulji.

The court also appointed a three-member committee comprising BCCI Joint Secretary Amitabh Choudhary, Treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry and Limaye to represent the Indian cricket board at the three-day International Cricket Council (ICC) meet starting on February 2.

The court said CEO Rahul Johri will brief the Rai committee about the implementation or otherwise of the Justice Lodha Committee recommendations for organisational reforms in the BCCI.

Earlier this month on January 2, the Supreme Court had sacked the BCCI President Anurag Thakur and Secretary Ajay Shirke, for not complying with its orders to implement the R M Lodha Committee reforms.

The court had also issued notices asking them why perjury and contempt proceedings should not be initiated against them.

A bench of Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud in their order had said that as an interim arrangement, the senior-most Vice President of the BCCI would act as the President and the Joint Secretary would be the Secretary.
