Andhra HC strikes down life-ban imposed against Indian cricketer Azharuddin

New Delhi:(Page3 News Network)-Andhra Pradesh High Court today struck down the life-ban imposed against Indian cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin. The Divisional Bench comprising Justice Asuthosh Mohantha and Justice Krishna Mohan Reddy has asked the BCCI to lift the ban against the former cricket captain. The BCCI had imposed life ban against the cricketer after a thorough inquiry in connection with match fixing allegations. Azharuddin had filed a petition in the High Court challenging the lower court’s order that upheld the ban.
Speaking at a press conference in Delhi today, Azharuddin said he was happy that the life ban imposed on him was set aside by the Andhra Pradesh High Court. He however refused to take legal action against the BCCI. Azharuddin said he would not want to blame anybody for the pain he suffered in the past 12 years. The former captain had ended his Test career at 99 matches because of the ban.
