Yes… I couldn’t believe when I saw him. It was Mohammad Azaruddin himself – in flesh and blood…
The location was St. John’s Cricket ground In Hyderabad, where our cricket team had gone to practise for the coming matches. I saw a new person standing near the club’s office door – in blue tees and a white shorts. The hunch-back shoulder looked very familiar to me… I have seen this person somewhere – but where? Then sombody in my team yells ‘Hey! It’s Azar!!!! ‘
He was in the gym for sometime and then spent nearly 15 minutes giving batting tips to some person in the nets. Yes, I did take video of him giving batting lessons. Who can forget his silky wristy shots down the leg side and back footed shots over cover/gully region. Will upload the videos once I am done with this post. Video uploaded and posted here.
In the end, Srikanth requested for a photo with him and we ended up taking a team photo. The sad part was, cos, I took the photo, I am not present in the snap.
Update1: Video uploaded.
Update2: I had spelt his name as Azaruddin. Now changed it.
