Former Indian skipper Md. Azharuddin has filed his nomination for the post of president of the Hyderabad Cricket Association on January 10.

Azhar, on January 9, had already given the confirmation of his nomination and had said,”I’ll definitely file my nomination of this post. I would like to bring some change and work hard to introduce more talents to Indian cricket.”

The 53-year-old Azharuddin played 99 Tests and 334 ODIs for India. The right-hander was banned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for match-fixing offences, in 2000. However, a court lifted the ban in 2012. After his cricket career, he joined politics and became a Member of Parliament, winning on a Congress ticket in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh, in 2009.
