Former Indian skipper Mohammad Azharuddin turned back the clock by treating his fans with trademark wristy flicks. Azharuddin posted a video of himself donning the gloves and casually playing his shots at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium with a stand named after him in the background.
Azharuddin is currently the President of the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA). Since he got banned for life, Azharuddin has barely made appearances on the cricket field barring a few occasions when he played for India seniors.
The stylish batsman’s short video featuring square cuts, flicks, and backfoot punches would have brought memories for the fans who followed Indian cricket in the 1990s.
