A high court in India has termed the life ban imposed on India’s former captain, Mohammed Azharuddin, as illegal and unsustainable in the court of law.
BCCI had imposed a life ban on Mohammed Azharuddin in 2000 on charges of match-fixing. But the Andhra Prasesh court has now declared the move as illegal.
In 2006, the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) has tried to lift Azhar’s life ban but the ICC interfered in the matter and claimed that only ICC had the power to lift bans on any international cricket player.
Azharuddin, who played 99 tests for India was one of the most successful cricketers in Indian cricket history and had mostly captained the side in 90s.
