Azharuddin to file nominations for HCA president

New Delhi: Mohammad Azharuddin, the former India captain, has confirmed that he will be filing the nomination for Hyderabad Cricket Association's president on Tuesday (January 10).

"Yes I will be filing my nomination on Tuesday," he told India Today. "I would like to bring some change and I will work hard to bring more talent in Indian cricket."

The Board of Control for Cricket in India's Working Committee has already approved the move for the 53-year-old to enter cricket administration. Azharuddin represented India in 99 Tests, 334 One-Day Internationals before he was banned following match-fixing claims in 2000. However, the ban getting lifted by the court in 2012 turned out to be a major relief for him.

The HCA has hit the news recently for several reasons after going back and forth on hosting the India-Bangladesh Test in February.
