HCA Apex Council issues show cause notice to president Azhar, suspends him | Cricket News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: The Apex Council members of the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) on Tuesday finally bit the bullet and issued a show cause notice to president Mohd Azharuddin for ‘acting against the interest of the Apex Council and thereby lowering its dignity and prestige before the other state cricket associations and the BCCI’. The former India captain has been given seven days’ time to explain why further action should not be taken against him.
In the five-page show cause notice, the five signatories said, “…pending inquiry… the Apex Council has suspended you until final adjudication and that includes termination of your membership in the HCA.”
The notice states, “The Council in its meeting held on June 10 has decided after careful consideration of various complaints made by the members of the general body and also on its volition had duly deliberated about your various acts of commission and omission in its meeting held and has decided to issue the show cause notice to you according to Rule 41 (1) (b) and 15 (4) (c).”
One of the main complaints against Azhar is that he is a mentor of Northern Warriors, a private club in Dubai and which took part in a tournament which is not recognised by the BCCI. “The fact of you being a mentor has not been communicated to the HCA at any time. It is also apparent that you have not communicated the same to the BCCI. Therefore you being a mentor of an unrecognised tournament comes under the ambit of conflict of interest as envisaged under Rule 38 (1) (iii) of the Memorandum of Association and Rules and Regulations 2018 of HCA,” the notice said.
It also said that, “You (Azhar) have addressed a letter to the Secretary of HCA on December 14, 2019, requesting inter alia to inform the BCCI about your retirement from active cricket from March 6, 2000, when you had played your last one-day international match. It is evident from the said letter that you have not informed the BCCI or the HCA about your retirement from active cricket before that letter. As you (Azhar) are aware a period of five years should have lapsed for you to contest an election from the time of you informing the HCA and the BCCI about your retirement,” the notice stated.
The other charge is that Azhar has tried to cripple the working of the association. ““It is also apparent that with your communication to the Canara Bank (Dilsukhnagar) where HCA maintains an account that you had deliberately tried to stall all financial transactions and commitments of HCA and cripple the Apex Council from discharging its financial obligations,” the show cause notice said.
The other charges include that Azhar has illegally and unlawfully and in an unauthorised and dictatorial fashion tried to foist Justice Deepak Verma as an Ombudsman to HCA and unilaterally fixed his remuneration. “You (Azhar) have committed various acts of indiscipline and misconduct which are detrimental to the interest of HCA and the game of cricket,” it said.
