Former India skipper Mohammad Azharuddin feels cheated after being denied to contest in the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) elections in January 2017, despite being cleared to contest by Board of Control for Cricket in India‘s (BCCI’s) legal cell. There have been reports that the BCCI had sent a notice to the HCA, stating that there was no bar on Azharuddin and he can be allowed to contest the HCA elections. HCA’s ad-hoc committee chairman Prakash Chand Jain had sent e-mails to the CCI enquiring about Azharuddin’s eligibility to contest the elections, as the sources add that the last email sent by Jain to the BCCI on the issue was back in January 10, 2017. Mohammad Azharuddin accuses HCA of not following Lodha reforms

“I had written three mails to the BCCI on the issue. But unfortunately the BCCI officials didn’t bother to reply. Even the RO had written to the BCCI. I am not sure if he got any reply. If he had gotten a reply, it would have been brought to our notice,” Jain was quoted by Times of India. BCCI’s acting president CK Khanna said, “This issue was discussed with the Committee of Administrators [CoA] and office-bearers where it was informed that BCCI’s legal team had cleared Azhar’s name. This matter has been recommended to the general body.” CoA asks BCCI to decide on Mohammad Azharuddin s outstanding dues

“It’s not a question of favouring him or not favouring him. There is no evidence against him and therefore legally you can’t stop him from getting his dues when the legal department of the board has cleared him,” a top BCCI official said on the issue.
