Azharuddin loses in Supreme Court


Azharuddin the suspended President of the Hyderabad cricket association has lost his case in the Supreme Court. He could not make a come back as the President to HCA again.

Earlier the Apex Council of Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) has “suspended” its own president, former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin, for alleged violation of its constitution.

Allegations of Conflict of Interest have been levelled against Azharuddin.

However, the validity of the suspension can be questioned as only the general body of a state unit has powers to suspend a sitting president and not the Apex Council, five of whose members are already inquired by HCA’s Ombudsman.

The HCA Apex Council had been at loggerheads with the former captain and during a recent BCCI Special General Meeting (SGM) wanted Shivlal Yadav as their representative but BCCI intervened, allowing Azharuddin to attend the meeting.

The former India skipper termed the move as a vendetta against him by the anti-lobby and vowed to fight back. But now he lost the case and we have to see what course of action will he take in the near future.
