Career

Azhar, as he was popularly known, was an elegant batsman and captain of the Indian team for most of the 1990s. Statistically he is one of India's most successful captains. He won a record 103 ODI matches as the captain of the Indian team. His 14 Test Match wins as captain, was a record until it was bettered by Sourav Ganguly. In his prime, he had a graceful, fluid batting style, comparable to that of his English contemporary, David Gower. The wrist flick was his most characteristic shot and he fared best against spinners. The grace and fluidity of his wrist once prompted John Woodcock, a noted cricket writer, to say, "It's no use asking an Englishman to bat like Mohammad Azharuddin. For, it would be like expecting a greyhound to win the London Derby!"

He was named Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1991, and was for many years an inspirational figure in the Indian team with his athletic fielding and leadership. However, towards the end of his career Azharuddin was accused of match-fixing [2]; South African captain Hansie Cronje in his confession for match-fixing had indicated that Azharuddin was also involved. This led the BCCI to ban him from the game of cricket for life in 2000. The Wisden Cricketers of the Year award is made annually in the pages of the Wisden Cricketers Almanack yearbook. ...

In one of his interviews, he claimed that he was being targeted because he was from a minority community. However, this statement backfired badly and invited severe criticism from all parts of the country and even from prominent minority community organisations in India. Ultimately, Azharuddin had to apologise publicly and retract his statements.

Getty, a cricket fanatic and major shareholder of Wisden, has invited Azharuddin to lunch at his country mansion outside London when the issue of the rescinded invitation is expected to be discussed at a personal level.
In a separate and exclusive interview at the Finchley cricket grounds, Azharuddin revealed the details of how he had been invited by Wisden Asia to attend the Wisden cricket awards at the Wembley Park Conference Centre in London, as he was one of the nominees for the Indian Cricketer of the Century Award.
Azharuddin said many of his cricketing colleagues have kept in touch with him, although he let slip that does not include members of the present Test side.

Azharuddin uttered a few words denying his involvement during the weeks he suffered as a near recluse after the report was released to the media on November 1 but made no public statements.
Azharuddin played 99 tests and amassed a total of 6,215 runs at a sturdy average of 45.03, with a highest score of 199.
Azharuddin was out of the team after the 1999 World Cup with a shoulder problem but scored a century early this year on returning, for a while silencing his critics.
