Goa cricket player Shadab Jakati who played for the Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Lions has challenged the inclusion of former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin’s son Asaduddin in the Goa cricket team.
“Just because he is the son of former India captain (Mohammad Azharuddin), who was a great player, does that automatically allow for his son to play for Goa?” expressed Jakati.
“He (Asaduddin) is aged 28 and never played a single Ranji trophy match, nor even a first-class match. Even the last match he played for a state was in 2009, that too for Hyderabad Colts team in an invitational tournament. He tried to play for Uttar Pradesh, he tried various states, but he was not given a chance,” Jakati added while speaking to the media.
