Moreover, Azhar has led the Team India in three ICC Cricket World Cups from 1992 to 1999, captaining the team into the semi-final in the 1996 edition as well.

As far as current Team India’s status is concerned, they have levelled the four-match Test series against Australia by 1-1. Meanwhile, India’s stylish opening batsman Rohit Sharma, who has recovered well from his hamstring injury and has currently been under quarantine in Sydney, will join the Test squad in Melbourne on Wednesday. However, there is still no surety on whether he will be featured in the third Test which is starting from January 7.

India head coach Ravi Shastri on Tuesday said to the media that the team management will talk to him about how his condition is before taking a call on his availability.

“Rohit joins the team tomorrow. We will have a chat with him to see where he is placed physically because he has been quarantined for a couple of weeks. We will have to see now how he feels before we take the call,” said Shastri.
