Historian Ram Guha included in panel to manage the BCCI, reactions pour in

The Supreme Court today appointed its own panel of 4 administrators that would run the BCCI and also carry out the reforms laid out by the Lodha Panel.

The panel will be led by Ex-CAG Vinod Rai and other members include MD of IDFC Vikram Limaye, former Indian women’s team captain Diana Edulji and pop-historian cum Nehru fan Ramachandra Guha (that’s right).

Apart from Diana Edulji, none of the panelists appear to have a professional background in cricket and Ram Guha is a self proclaimed ‘Failed cricketer’ (as per his Twitter bio). And as expected, people reacted to this development with surprise and wit.

Here are some of the reactions (and predictions):


Plus there would be no toss, opponents would be given first right to choose:


And India’s tour to England would be called as Discovery of England:


Any critics of the team would immediately be blocked from watching cricket:


A state of emergency would be imposed in those cities which would have low stadium attendances:


This very important piece of history would no longer be overlooked


With immediate effect!


Then centuries later this history can be twisted by liberal filmmakers under the garb of artistic freedom:


Maybe Boxing federation would be more apt:


Some also talked about Vinod Rai’s appointment to the panel:


Finally an explanation on why the SC made such appointments:
