“Till these matters are finally heard by this court, and with the consent of the parties, we deem it appropriate to direct both the President and the Secretary of the Hyderabad Cricket Association to jointly sign the cheques so that the day-to-day functioning of the Association is not hampered for the time being,” the three-judge bench said in its order.

The bench consisting of Chief Justice of India NV Ramana, Justice Surya Kant and Justice Hima Kohli heard the learned counsel for the parties. The matter is likely to be listed on November 13 for further hearing.

Later in the evening, HCA president Azharuddin issued a notification on the matter.

“In compliance with the orders of the Hon’ble Supreme Court dated 27th October 2021 in SLP 6779/2021, 6819/2021 & 16526/2021 it is hereby notified that R Vijayanand, secretary (under suspension), will be the co-signatory only on the cheques of HCA presented to Canara Bank, Dilsukhnagar branch, along with Mohammed Azharuddin, president,” the release said.

Azharuddin also made it clear that the arrangement is only signing cheques. “For all other matters of HCA, Mohammed Azharuddin, Parth Satwalkar and Subhadra Suri shall function as Apex Council until further orders,” he stated.

What has baffled the HCA officials is that the treasurer Surender Agarwal has been completely sidelined. “The treasurer and president are supposed to be the co-signators on the cheques of the HCA. How can the secretary be involved in the financial matters of the administration? It is not his jurisdiction at all,” said a member.
