Hyderabad, Jan 10: Former India cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin on Tuesday filed nomination for the post of president of the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA). After filing the nomination papers, he exuded confidence of winning the election, likely to be held later this month.
The post fell vacant after Arshad Ayub had to relinquish his post following the Supreme Court verdict on the Lodha Committee reforms.
The 53-year-old is not a voter in HCA but maintained that he has the right to contest the elections in the wake of the Lodha Committee reforms.
The former Member of Parliament said that his basic intention is to see that the game of cricket flourish in Hyderabad and the rest of Telangana. He expressed concern over the poor state of affairs in HCA and said he would like to set right the things and focus on the game. IANS
