There have been allegations and controversies about cricketers’ relationships with the underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, who is a wanted criminal and fugitive from India. However, it is important to note that these are only allegations, and no conclusive evidence has been found to support these claims.
One of the most high-profile cases was the alleged involvement of former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin with Dawood Ibrahim. In 2000, Azharuddin was banned for life from cricket for his involvement in match-fixing, and there were reports that he had links with the underworld don. However, Azharuddin denied the allegations and no conclusive evidence was found to support them.
Another case involved former Indian cricketer and commentator Navjot Singh Sidhu, who was accused of having ties with Dawood Ibrahim’s gang. However, no evidence was found to support these claims, and Sidhu was acquitted in the case.
There have also been allegations that some Pakistani cricketers had links with the underworld don. In 2000, former Pakistani captain Salim Malik was banned for life for match-fixing allegations, and there were reports that he had links with Dawood Ibrahim. However, no conclusive evidence was found to support these claims.
It is important to note that cricket is a popular sport in South Asia, and many underworld figures are known to be involved in illegal betting and match-fixing. However, it is also important to remember that allegations of links with the underworld should be treated with caution and not taken as proven facts unless supported by conclusive evidence.
