Mohammad Azharuddin, the former India captain has joined the Congress party. Azharuddin ended his international career in disgrace after being implicated in the match-fixing scandal.
Towards the end of his career Azharuddin was accused of match-fixing; South African captain Hansie Cronje in his confession for match-fixing had indicated that Azharuddin was the one to introduce him to the bookies. But Azhar was not proven guilty in court of law.
Talking to media Azhar said,
I am not the captain here, just a player, and will do anything the party asks me to do. The Congress has done so much for the country since the freedom movement. I wanted to give something back to the nation and the best way was to serve the people. I know I am capable of helping the party and the nation. I will do my best.
