Controversy broke out at the Hyderabad Cricket Association after it barred Mohammed Azharuddin from attending its Special General Meeting, leaving the former India captain fuming. Azharuddin was initially not allowed to attend Sunday’s SGM because of his alleged “association with an unofficial cricket body”, HCA president G Vivek said here. “He was a proxy voter. That too, his card was signed by the suspended secretary,” Vivek said.

The SGM was convened to pass the Lodha Committee recommendations. Vivek alleged that Azharuddin, who was made to wait for an hour, was campaigning against the HCA by being associated as a brand ambassador of a cricket body not recognised by the BCCI. Vivek said the Lodha panel recommendations were adopted and dismissed reports that not many members endorsed the move to bar Azhar from the SGM. Azharuddin, 54, was furious: “I’m a Hyderabad player and have been Indian team captain for 10 years. These people running the organisation know nothing about cricket. They’ve never held a bat or ball in their life.”
