Gambhir, not one to hold back from expressing his reservations for anyone remotely associated with match-fixing, took to twitter to air his views.
"India may have won today at Eden but I am sorry @bcci, CoA & CAB lost. Looks like the No Tolerance Policy against Corrupt takes a leave on Sundays! I know he was allowed to contest HCA polls but then this is shocking. The bell is ringing, hope the powers that be are listening," Gambhir tweeted.
Azharuddin was banned for life by the BCCI for his alleged involvement in the match-fixing scandal that rocked the cricket world in 2000. However, in 2012, the former captain's ban was overturned by the Andhra High Court.
While the BCCI has never formally issued any statement on the Azharuddin issue for the past few years, he has been a regular feature in the board's events. His financial dues, though, are yet to be cleared.
It was learnt that Virender Sehwag, one of the members of the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association's Cricket Advisory Committee, didn't like some of the questions that Gambhir had posed for Prabhakar.
Gambhir has in the past expressed his views on wide-ranging topics from politics, terrorism to sports.
