Legendary former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin enthralled Bahrain’s men’s, women’s and U19/16 teams, as well as Bahrain Cricket Federation board members and officials, at the BCF Iftar, as he answered their questions in his trademark straight-from-the-heart style and posed for photos with fans of all ages.

But what really got the crowd cheering was his commitment to helping cricket in Bahrain progress to a top-flight level.

“I will do whatever I can to help cricket grow quickly in Bahrain. From what I have seen in the short time I have been here, there is plenty of talent but it needs to be supported by proper infrastructure,” said Azhar

Guest of honour Indian Ambassador Piyush Srivastava had yielded the floor to Azharuddin after briefly addressing the audience and extolling the former Indian star’s many achievements. Flanked by BCF chairman Hatim Dadabai and BCF advisory board chairman Mohammad Mansoor, Azharuddin thanked the ambassador before requesting the Indian embassy would help in the move to take Bahrain cricket forward.
