Azharuddin was in Ahmedabad last week where he attended the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Annual General Meeting as the capacity of Hyderabad Cricket Association President. Azharuddin featured in the exhibition match between the president’s XI and secretary XI.
Azharuddin played for Jay Shah’s XI and scored a match-winning 37 against Sourav Ganguly’s XI. Ganguly’s fifty went in vain as the two teams played at the rebuilt Motera Stadium, which will host 2 Tests against England in February-March 2021.
