Muslim Cricketer Azharuddin Free From Match Fixing Charges :: Ban was Illegal says Court

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday, struck down the life ban imposed on former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) 12 years ago.

A division bench of the high court set aside the order of a lower court which had upheld the ban.

It was on Dec 5, 2000, that the BCCI banned Azhar from playing cricket for life after being found guilty of match-fixing.

The Hyderabadi had challenged the Indian cricket board’s decision in the City Civil Court, which upheld the ban. He then moved to high court against the lower court’s order, his lawyers arguing that the BCCI imposed the ban without any evidence.

The 49-year-old is currently a member of parliament from Moradabad constituency in Uttar Pradesh.

Azhar, one of India’s successful captains, played 99 Tests scoring over 6,215 runs during his career. He also played 334 One-Day Internationals scoring 9,378 runs in his 15-year international career.

Ban on former skipper Mohammed Azharuddin on match-fixing charges was illegal, rules Andhra Pradesh High Court

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday ruled that the life ban on former Indian cricket skipper Mohammed Azharuddin on match-fixing charges was illegal.Azharuddin, who is now a Lok Sabha member, had been banned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in 2000.

The high court ruling came on Azharuddin’s appeal that the ban on him be lifted.

Azhar had vehemently denied all charges and taken the matter up in court. In 2009, when he joined the Congress party, many leaders had requested the BCCI to lift the ban. However, the BCCI had then said they could not lift the ban until its annual general meeting (AGM) approved it.

Now that the high court has ruled in Azhar’s favour, the former Indian captain has been feeling vindicated. Reacting to the high court order, he told Headlines Today that he was relieved.

Asked if he had regrets for not being able to complete a century of Tests, as he was banned when he was at a personal record of 99 Tests even as years of his cricket career was left, he said, “I have no regrets. It was destined. I was made to play 99 Tests… I was set to get the high court relief today and I got it.”

To a question, Azhar praised the BCCI for the kind of work it has been doing to promote the game in the country. He put the onus on the BCCI to utilise his expertise for the betterment of the game.
