High court terms life ban on Mohammad Azharuddin as illegal

High court terms life ban on Mohammad Azharuddin as illegal.

The Andhra Pradesh High Court Thursday termed the life ban imposed on former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) 12 years ago as “illegal”.

A division bench of the high court set aside the order of a lower court which had upheld the ban. It was on December 5, 2000, that the BCCI banned Azhar from playing cricket for life after being found guilty of match-fixing.
