BCCI is not “State” under Article 12 – the story of “other authorities”

The Supreme Court has held in Board of Control for Cricket in India v. Cricket Association of Bihar and Others that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (“the BCCI“) was not “State” under Article 12. In holding so, the two-judge bench was bound by the Court’s precedent. The table below illustrates this precedent.
