Mohammad Azharuddin also known as Azhar or Azzu ( among cricket fraternity ) is an Indian politician, former cricketer who was the Member of Parliament in the Lok Sabha from Moradabad. He was renowned as an elegant middle-order batsman and captain of the Indian cricket team in 47 tests and 174 one day matches during the 1990s. His international playing career came to an end when he was found to be involved in a match-fixing scandal in 2000 and subsequently banned by the BCCI for life. In 2012, the Andhra Pradesh High Court declared the life ban illegal. A division bench of the high court set aside the order of the City Civil Court, which had upheld the ban after Azharuddin had challenged it. But by then he was 49 years old and too old to get back on the pitch. He said he was happy the issue was over and done with, and he would not be taking any further legal action: “It was a long-drawn-out legal case and it was painful. We fought in court for 11 years. Finally the verdict has come and I am happy that the ban has been lifted by the court.”
