Mohammad Azharuddin Biography


“Cricket is like f**king to him: simply exit and do it” had been the phrases Allan Lamb used to describe Mohammad Azharuddin’s batting. Lamb become now not off-target, for, in phrases of sheer aesthetic delight, few could fit Azhar on his pomp.

He had wrists of metal, should play any ball — the line seldom mattered — to any direction between mid-on and fine-leg; when on a song, he ought to tear any bowling facet apart. On his day, there was no stopping him, as bowlers internationally found out to their peril.

He had his weaknesses in opposition to tempo and soar — weaknesses that stopped him from scoring the world over.  The West Indian speedy bowlers exposed him brutally (he averaged 28 towards them and 20 at their den), and he did no longer do well in Australia either (an insignificant 28).

Azhar started with one hundred in each of his first three checks — still a global document. By the point 1985 ended, he became hailed as the subsequent big component. by 1989, he was on the verge of being dropped. Then Raman Lamba got injured just earlier than the Karachi check, giving Azhar one final chance; 4 exams later, Azhar was named captain of India.

Azhar’s captaincy components in the 1990s, based on a phalanx of spinners led with the aid of Anil Kumble on turning tracks, revolved around domestic victories (he by no means lost a series at domestic) and away defeats (he gained only one, in Sri Lanka). Nevertheless, he completed as one of the most successful Indian captains.

As a batsman, he can be chic and murderous at the same time: there were many spectacular performances worth a do not forget, the maximum well-known being 121 at Lord’s in 1990, 106 at Adelaide Oval in 1991-92, 182 at Eden Gardens in 1992-ninety three, 109 at Eden Gardens in 1996-97, one hundred fifteen at Newlands in 1996-ninety seven, and 108 now not out at SSC in 1997.

He also signed off with a valiant 102, which made him considered one of choosing few to score loads inside his test career’s first and last innings. So it became a take a look at the profession of ‘nearly,’ for Azhar completed with 99 assessments and a profession first-class of 199.

Azhar’s grasp of the restrained-over layout dominated the center-overs with sharp singles and the potential to boost up to at will. The twelfth guy bringing out a collection of bats earlier than the quit-overs for Azhar to choose one and go for the slog turned into a commonplace spectacle in ODIs featuring India in the Nineteen Nineties. He finished with nine 378 ODI runs, a international document on the time of his retirement. He also had a successful stint with Derbyshire.

After which, there has been his electric fielding — without a doubt not the most powerful factor of Indian cricket inside the 1990s. He took marvelous catches inside the slips and prowled at point or extra-cover with the litheness of a panther, swooping down on balls and effecting run-outs with direct hits. The characteristic swagger that marked him out when he walked across the in-field, his collars raised.

The cease came all at once after he succumbed to the Cult of Mammon within the overdue Nineteen Nineties. match-fixing fees surfaced, and Azhar became banned for lifestyles, although the ban changed into lifted in 2012. An Indian country-wide Congress member, Azhar, changed into elected MP from Moradabad. His biopic, directed with Tony D’Souza, is scheduled to launch in 2016, with Emraan Hashmi playing the lead position.
