About Mohammad Azharuddin Mohammad Azharuddin Mohammed_ (born 8 February 1963, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh) also known as Azhar, is a former captain of the Indian cricket team that was disgraced after being involved in a match-fixing scandal. He was a right-handed batsman and usually batted at five in Test cricket. He is presently a member of Indian parliament. He represents the Moradabad constituency of Uttar Pradesh and is a member of the Indian National Congress.In his prime, he had a graceful, fluid batting style, comparable to that of his English contemporary, David Gower. The wrist flick was his most characteristic shot and he fared best against spinners. The grace and fluidity of his wrist once prompted John Woodcock, a noted cricket writer, to say, "It's no use asking an Englishman to bat like Mohammad Azharuddin. For, it would be like expecting a greyhound to win the London Derby!" Former Indian captain and International Umpire Venkataraghavan said that "Azharuddin had the best wrists in the game, but Tendulkar isn't too far behind" while praising Sachin Tendulkar.
