IND vs AUS: What Mohammad Azharuddin said on black marketing of tickets for Hyderabad T20 match


Hyderabad. Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) president Mohammad Azharuddin said on Friday that the body has nothing to do with black marketing of tickets for the India-Australia T20 cricket match. There, R. Yogendra Gaur also demanded an ex-gratia of Rs 20 lakh each from the State Human Rights Commission for those injured in the stampede there. A day after fans were injured in a stampede during ticket sales at the Gymkhana Ground in Secunderabad, the former India captain denied that the HCA had done anything wrong.

Azharuddin told reporters that the task of selling tickets both online and offline was entrusted to the Paytm company and the company praised him for doing a good job. The third T20 match between India and Australia is to be played on 25 September at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium. He denied that tickets were sold in black. There is no truth in these allegations, he said. If someone is blacking the ticket then we will take strict action.

‘Thursday incident in gymkhana is unfortunate’
Azharuddin said that if someone has bought a ticket online and sold it in black, then HCA has nothing to do with it. He termed Thursday’s incident at the gymkhana as unfortunate and reiterated that the HCA would help the injured. He said that since Hyderabad is hosting the international match after a long time, many people are eager to watch it at the stadium. Azharuddin expressed hope that it is going to be an interesting match between two strong teams. He sought everyone’s cooperation for the successful conduct of the match.

HCA constituted committee on stampede incident
HCA Secretary Vijayanand told that HCA has constituted a committee on the incident that happened during ticket sale on Thursday. He pointed out that the stadium was not properly maintained during the Kovid-19 pandemic, but claimed that HCA has worked hard to make all arrangements for the match.

Meanwhile, a complaint has been filed against Azharuddin with the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) in connection with Thursday’s incident at the Gymkhana. R. Yogendra Gaur has urged the SHRC to order a criminal case against Azharuddin and other HCA officials for the stampede and police lathi-charge on cricket fans. Along with this, he also demanded an ex-gratia of Rs 20 lakh each for those injured in the stampede.
