Hyderabad, Jan 10: Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin will contest the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) elections this year.
Azharuddin will file nomination papers on Tuesday (January 10). He will contest for the post of the president.
"Yes I will be filing my nomination on Tuesday. I would like to bring some change and I will work hard to bring more talent in Indian cricket," Azharuddin was quoted as saying in the media.
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.
