Historian Ramachandra Guha has resigned from the four-member Committee of Administrators (CoA) appointed by the Supreme Court to run the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

As per reports, Guha submitted his resignation to the committee chairman Vinod Rai on Thursday morning, citing personal reasons.

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

Guha’s resignation has come days before the all-important clash between India and Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy.

The CoA was appointed by the Supreme Court on 30 January 2017 after the BCCI was reluctant to implement the Lodha panel report.

Ramachandra Guha, who is a cricket buff and resides in Bengaluru, resigns at a time when the CoA is expected to take several important decisions concerning the future of the BCCI and the Indian cricket team.
