Mohammed Azharuddin has got no place in my life: Gautam Gambhir
Ex-India cricketer Gautam Gambhir has said that ex-India captain Mohammed Azharuddin, who had served a ban over match fixing, has got no place in his life. He further revealed Azharuddin’s name is taken at ICC anti-corruption meetings before big events like IPL. Recently, Gambhir had criticised authorities for allowing Azharuddin to ring the bell at Eden Gardens before a match.
Recently, he expressed his displeasure over the decision by the authorities to invite former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin to ring a bell at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata ahead of India’s T20I game against the Windies in November. Gambhir’s point of objection was over honoring Azharuddin, a cricketer tainted by match-fixing slurs who was banned by the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India in 2000.
