Mohammad Azharuddin is a former Indian cricketer who was born on February 8, 1963, in Hyderabad, India. He was a stylish middle-order batsman and a brilliant fielder, who captained the Indian cricket team for most of the 1990s.
Azharuddin made his debut for the Indian cricket team in 1984 in an ODI against England, and he made his Test debut in 1985 against England. He quickly established himself as one of the most talented and elegant batsmen of his generation, known for his wristy strokeplay and his ability to play both spin and pace with equal ease.
Azharuddin captained the Indian cricket team from 1989 to 1999, leading India in three ICC Cricket World Cups. He also holds the record for the most consecutive Test centuries by an Indian batsman, with three centuries in three consecutive Tests in 1990-91.
However, Azharuddin’s cricketing career was marred by a match-fixing scandal in 2000, which led to his ban from cricket. He was later cleared of all charges by the Andhra Pradesh High Court, but his cricketing career had already been effectively ended.
After retiring from cricket, Azharuddin became involved in politics and was elected to the Lok Sabha, the lower house of the Indian Parliament, in 2009. He has also worked as a commentator and a television personality.
Azharuddin played 99 Tests and 334 ODIs for India, scoring over 9,000 runs in both formats. He is considered one of the greatest batsmen to have played for India, and his elegant strokeplay and graceful style continue to be admired by fans and fellow cricketers alike.
