Vinod Rai, the Head of Committee of Administrators (COA) will quit the post should BCCI not implement the recommendations of Lodha panel. It has been learnt that Rai will wait for for the Indian Board to implement all the recommendations of the panel and if BCCI fails to do so, then the Head of COA will quit the post.

If Rai quits the job, then he will be the third outgoing personality from the former four four-member panel. Ramachandra Guha, the noted historian has already quit the post in COA citing issues in BCCI, as the reason. Vikram Limaye too will soon quit the job, once he delivers his message to The Supreme Curt of India. He has been appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of National Stock Exchange of India.
Now if Rai also quits the job, then there might be a case when the COA might be dissolved, as Diana Edulji will be the only member left in the committee. (Read: Ramachandra Guha Writes To Vinod Rai)
“Mr Rai is doing this work honorary. He has other important work to accomplish rather than following up with the BCCI members to implement the Supreme Court order. He has given himself time till September before deciding to stay on the committee,” a source told HT.
The Committee of Administrators was formed by the Supreme Cout of India on January 30 to look into the day to day workings of BCCI, after sacking of Anurag Thakur on January 2.
Meanwhile, in the SGM held on July 26, BCCI decided to constitute a six-member committee to implement the Lodha recommendations, which will give its recommendation in two weeks time. However, there are some issues in the Lodha recommendations that BCCI is uneasy in implementing the recommendations in toto.
Few of the major points that have been opposed by BCCI are regarding the age cap barrier, cooling off period, one state-one vote policy and trimming of the selection panel to three members.
