Former Indian skipper Mohammad Azharuddin files nomination for HCA president post
Former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin ran for the nomination for president at the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA), which will hold its election spending on 27 September.
Azharuddin, whose nomination was rejected unceremoniously two years ago, submitted his documents to former Chief Election Commissioner VS Sampath on Wednesday.
“I want to receive input from everyone and work to promote cricket. I want to do something for the districts as well (towards cricket growth), ” said Azharuddin.
Vikram Man Singh, son of former cricket administrator P R Man Singh, submitted his nomination for the position of vice president.
Those who submitted nominations include Ajmal Asad (secretary), P Srinivas (joint secretary), G Srinivas (treasurer) and P Anuradha (counsel).
The election panel will announce after the nominations withheld on September 23, sources said.
It understood that the electoral offer of Azharuddin, Vikram, and others supports by former cricketers and administrators Arshad Ayub and Shivlal Yadav.
Azharuddin’s nomination paper for the post of HCA president was rejected in 2017 by the returning officer because he was unable to provide evidence that BCCI lifted the ban imposed on him for his alleged participation in settlement of pa ratios.
Election officials had also said then that there was no clarity as to whether Azharuddin was an eligible voter of the club he currently represents.
