The news comes just one day after the board had made a decision to clear former team India coach Anil Kumble's dues.
Azhar, however, feels that Kumble did the right thing by avoiding a confrontational approach and keeping his dignity intact. Knowing Anil, I don't think he is that type of a person.
"I have always felt that competition gets the best out of me".
Former India skipper, Mohammad Azharuddin, who was banned for life for match-fixing in 2000, urged the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday to take a positive stand in resolving the issue of pace bowler S Sreesanth.
"He has lost four years but Sreesanth will have to bring his fitness up to the required standards".
"There might be stiff competition for fast bowlers' spots now. If he was handled better, he would have turned out to be a good fast bowler", Azhar added. While the men's cricket team just completed its 8th consecutive Test series win after defeating Sri Lanka in the second Test of the ongoing three-match Test series, the women's team had an outstanding ICC Women's World Cup where it entered the final. Kumble stepped down immediately after the end of the tournament after the BCCI had conveyed to the spin legend that Kohli had expressed reservations about his style of coaching.
PGA Championship at a glance
This was its major reason for the changes . "We felt it was important as an organisation to seize this opportunity". In Europe, the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth will also move in the calendar. "It was my fault".
It is a given that BCCI's general body would give a thumbs down to India's participation in Olympics as it would mean that they would be counted as National Sports Federation with players needing to sign WADA's whereabouts clause (the Indian players are completely against it).
The KCA's move comes a day after the Kerala High Court Monday lifted the life ban imposed on Sreesanth by the BCCI in the wake of the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal.
Mumbai: S. Sreesanth, who was given a lifeline after the Kerala high court recently lifted the life ban on him, has written a letter to the BCCI seeking permission to revive his career.
"I also request you to take appropriate decision to enable me to resume my cricket career both at national and worldwide level without any further delay".
Anil Kumble has been paid his dues of close to Rs 1 crore by the BCCI, marking a closure to his acrimonious episode as the head coach of the Indian cricket team.
