New Delhi:

The Returning Officer K Rajeev Reddy rejected the nomination of former India cricket captain Mohd Azharuddin for the post of President in the Hyderabad Cricket Association elections.

Earlier, former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin on Tuesday filed his nomination papers for Hyderabad Cricket Association president’s post after incumbent Arshad Ayub quit office following the Supreme Court verdict on Lodha committee reforms.

One of the longest serving Indian captain with the distinction of leading India in three successive World Cups (1992, 1996, 1999), Azharuddin was banned for life by the BCCI for his alleged involvement in the match-fixing scandal that was unearthed in 2000.
