BCCI's ban from cricket on Mohammad Azharuddin is illegal: Andhra HC
Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday has ruled that life-ban on former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin was illegal.

According to sources, a division bench of Andhra High Court said that the ban on Azharuddin on match fixing charges was unsustainable by law. The former cricketer was banned for life from playing all forms of cricket by the Board Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) in 2000.

Azhar appealed against the ban imposed on him, asking the court to lift the ban. Previously, he challenged BCCI's decision in the City Civil Court, which upheld the ban. When he joined the Congress party in 2009, various leaders urged the cricketing body to lift the ban, but the BCCI had then said that they could not do so until its annual general meeting (AGM) approved it.

Azhar (49) is one of the successful captains of India. He played 99 Tests and scored more than 6,215 runs during his career. He also played 334 One-Day Internationals scoring 9,378 runs in his 15-year international career.

At present he is a Member of Parliament from Moradabad constituency in Uttar Pradesh.
