Dirk Nannes terms Azharuddin ‘confessed match fixer’, fans argue with him

Sudipta / 14 May 2016

The movie “Azhar- the untold story of Indian cricket” released on Friday. Before big bang release around India, the former Indian captain was welcomed by Indian Premier League for promoting his movie. But former Netherlands and Australian cricketer Dirk Nannes raised a question that how could a cricketer who didn’t clear the match fixing allegation welcome in IPL pre-match show. Nannes expressed his shock over the extra royal treatment that the former Indian captain has been getting.

Nannes said it is unfair on the part of cricket shows to welcome a “confessed match fixer” for his film promotion.

But, fans of Azhar objected Nannes’ comment and tweeted in Azhar’s favour. Watching all these Nannes   shared some media reports to support his point.
