Hyderabad:The Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) plans to celebrate the platinum jubilee of Moin-ud-Dowla Gold cup cricket tournament in a big way and resolved to play all Ranji matches at the Visakha stadium hereafter.

At the Annual General Body Meeting held here, the members agreed to organise Moin-ud-Dowla, which heralds the cricketing season beginning in September, in a grand scale as this would be the 75th edition of the tournament.

An Extraordinary General Body Meeting will be called to chalk out the preparations and arrangements for the function, HCA spokesman said here today.

The AGM, chaired by HCA President and State Minister for Labour and Employment G Vinod, has also decided to conduct all Ranji Trophy matches at the newly built Viskaha Stadium at the outskirts instead of the Gymkhana grounds.

The AGM agreed to complete all the works at Uppal stadium by October barring floodlights which will be installed later. HCA Secretary Shivlal Yadav, past Presidents and other members attended the meeting held at Viskaha Stadium.
