HCA not following the Lodha Committee recommendations: Azharuddin

Vastavam web: Former India skipper Mohammed Azharuddin today alleged that the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) is not following the Lodha Committee recommendations and also indulged in other “irregularities and misuse”.Azharuddin, whose nomination was rejected for the post of HCA president in the elections held in January this year, said deserving players were “ignored” in the teams announced for the Moin-ud-Dowla cricket tournament to be held here.”It is very unfortunate that both the teams of HCA participating in Moin-ud-Dowla have been announced, those players who have scored more than three centuries in two day leagues and those who have taken more than five wickets have been totally ignored,” he alleged.

“The purpose of my press conference is to bring in (to) the notice of the Supreme Court, the misconduct and blatant disregard of the judgements of the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee,” he said.”I urge all of you in the media, to bring to light the daring misconduct and the sorry state of affairs of Hyderabad Cricket Association and all sorts of misuse happening there,” he added.When contacted, HCA President G Vivekanand denied the allegations.
