Answer

Correct Option is BCCI

The Supreme court has held the fact that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was not “State” under Article 12 and the following reasons were given as a proof of it. The BCCI is not created by a statute. No part of the share capital of BCCI is held by the government. Practically no financial assistance is given by the government to meet the whole or entire expenditure of the Board. BCCI’s monopoly in the field of cricket is not state-conferred or state-protected. There is no deep and pervasive state control. Control if any is regulatory. The BCCI is an autonomous body and was not created by the transfer of government-owned corporation."
