Azharuddin requests BCCI, CoA to consider compensation package

It has been almost five years since the Andhra Pradesh High Court had ruled that the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) life ban on former Indian skipper Mohammad Azharuddin in the aftermath of the match-fixing saga was 'illegal' and 'unsustainable'.

Neither did the BCCI contest the court verdict nor did it officially revoke the ban. It came to haunt Azharuddin earlier this year when he wanted to contest the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) elections. The Returning Officer disqualified Azharuddin on the ground that the BCCI had not revoked his ban.

It is learnt that Azharuddin has written to the BCCI mandarins including president CK Khanna, secretary Amitabh Choudhary and even to the Committee of Administrators (CoA) asking them to clear his dues which include the one-time benefit given to the former captains of the Indian team.
