Hyderabad: Outgoing treasurer Naresh Sharma handed over the accounts of the Hyderabad Cricket Association that show a bank balance of Rs 3.11 crore, to president Arshad Ayub at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium on Monday.
The figures quoted are as per balance on September 7, 2014, the day of the recent HCA election.
Besides the the cash instruments is a silver salver that was proposed to be presented to Sachin Tendulkar on his birthday on April 24, 2011, the day he was playing an IPL match for the Mumbai Indians against Deccan Chargers in Hyderabad. The memento remained with the HCA as Tendulkar had left the venue after the game to pay his respects to spiritual leader Sathya Sai Baba, who had passed away in Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh the same day.
Also among the treasure are four gold coins weighing 130 grams and sealed in bank covers that were to be presented to former state Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, who was also the chief patron of the HCA. Mr Reddy did not accept the gold coins, which remained in HCA’s custody, according to Naresh’s Handing Over Report to the HCA president.
