Former India batsman Mohammad Azharuddin last appeared on the cricket ground 20 years ago. Mohammad Azharuddin is considered to be one of the most successful captains of India along with the finest batsman. However, after his name appeared in the Match Fixing Scandal in 2000, he was banned for life and his cricketing career came to a standstill.
