Former India cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin has been elected as the president of Hyderabad Cricket Association. He got 173 votes while his opponent Prakash Chand Jain got 73 votes. Azharuddin had tried to run for HCA president 2 years ago as well but his nomination was rejected on technical grounds. Azharuddin, who led India in 47 Tests and 174 ODIs, was indicted for match-fixing in 2000 and banned from playing cricket for life. In 2012 however, the Andhra Pradesh High Court declared his life ban illegal.
