Azhar strikes back.

Last time...Image by rodc via Flickr
This blogger has consistently held the view that Azharuddin is the only cricketer to have been victimised because of the corruption scandal that hit cricket in the late nineties.
When transgressions of players like Shane Warne, Mark Waugh and even Salim Malik were indulged, Azharuddin, mainly due to BCCI’s trigger happiness has been handed a life-ban.
Leaving Azharuddin’s ban aside, it is good to hear that Mohammad Ashaduddin, son of Mohammad Azharuddin, has been selected for the trials camp of Kolkata Knight Riders.
It is also interesting to hear that Azharuddin’s younger son Mohammad Aiyazuddin is widely tipped to emulate his father.
Can we call this happy event ‘the return of Azharuddin’?

Aiyaz is the real deal... A southpaw I think.

Azza's been punished enough without the court ordering anything yet.

happy new year to you Ottayan.

Finally ! Good luck to him ... His younger brother is also a good player from what I've heard. I will finally get back to watching cricket which I gave up on after Azhar was banned :(
