Mohammad Azharuddin’s journey from the wristy flick to fame and now politics
Mohammad Azharuddin was undoubtedly one of India’s best batsmen before he was banned for life for being involved in spot-fixing.
Before that, he was the captain of the Indian team that played in three World Cups–1992, 1996 and 1999. He made his presence felt with three hundreds in as many Tests and his wristy flick and classy strokeplay was a treat to watch.
