Left-arm paceman from Australia, Dirk Nannes wasn’t the least bit pleased when former India skipper Mohammad Azharuddin made an appearance on a show during the on-going Indian Premier League (IPL).

Nannes took to social media and stated, “Why is a confessed match fixer welcomed on a cricket show and treated like royalty? How is that even possible?”

Azhar was banned from cricket for life in December 2000 after the right-hand batsman confessed of being a part of match-fixing scandal.

    Today nobody speaks to CBI without your attorney/lawyer present. Azhar was not well informed, when he was speaking to CBI, he should have had legal advice, when you speaks with such organization they are looking to frame you. Mr Nannes, Azhar was loved in India long before the match fixing allegations, because of his style of cricket. We all loved Azhar, but we never got to listen to his side of the story. The same azhar we adored, we hated him without listening to his side.
