He captained Parsees, and after retirement, continued his association with the game in the capacity of the President of Mumbai Cricket Association from 1930-31 to 1934-35.
He was the Vice-President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India from 1936 to 1945.
 
He was also the Chairman of the All India Selection Committee from 1932-33 to 1939-40.
 
A committee was formed under the Chairmanship of Justice S R Tendulkar in 1948, which suggested that an inter-club tournament be started in the city of Mumbai, to perpetuate his memory. And with great pride, we can say that Dr H D Kanga Cricket League Tournament, which commenced in 1948, is being played on various grounds of the city of Mumbai without a break since then.
 
Dr H D Kanga Memorial Library, the only sports library of its kind in the whole world, was named after him and Mumbai Cricket Association has been managing it very efficiently for the last 55 years.
