Twitter reacts to ‘historian’ Ram Guha quitting his BCCI post gifted by SC

In January this year, people were both amused and perplexed after the Supreme Court appointed 4 administrators who would run the BCCI and carry out the reforms which were laid out by the Lodha panel. These 4 administrators included ex-CAG Vinod Rai and pop-historian cum Nehru aficionado Ramachandra Guha.

People thought that the appointment of Vinod Rai might have been made in order to scrutinize and set right the financial dealings of the BCCI, but couldn’t decipher the possible logic behind appointing an historian to the administrative post which needs foresight and ability to evolve over time. At that time people had taken potshots at Guha’s appointment:

Now it seems even Ram Guha seems to have realized that he wasn’t cut out for the job and on Thursday informed the Supreme Court that he had resigned from his post due to personal reasons. He had reportedly tendered his resignation to Vinod Rai some days ago on 28th May.

Apparently the Committee of Administrators too was caught blindsided by his resignation and people are now speculating if the resignation had something to do with the ongoing tussle between Anil Kumble and Virat Kohli.

The exact reasons are not known, however, Twitter reacted in its own way to this news:
