Mohammad Azharuddin reunited with his historic bat

Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin was reunited with the cricket bat he used to score record 3 consecutive centuries in his first 3 Test matches.
Mohammad Azharuddin is the only player to score centuries in his first 3 Tests.

On Twitter, Azhar posted a picture of him holding the bat along with the message, “With this bat, I made a world record of three consecutive hundreds in my first three tests against England in 1984 & 1985. In a season, I scored more than 800 runs with this very bat, chosen by my grandfather.”

The former Indian right-handed batsman played 99 Test matches for India and captained India in 47 of those.

In the picture, the former India captain was seen wearing his India jersey from the 1992 World Cup.

Azharuddin made his debut in December 1984 in the third Test between India and England held at Kolkata under Sunil Gavaskar’s captaincy.

Azhar scored 110 runs in his first Test innings and followed that up with 48 runs in the first innings of the fourth Test in Chennai and then scored 105 runs in the second innings.

In the fifth Test in Kanpur, Azhar scored 122 runs and unbeaten 54 runs off 43 balls in the second innings.

The 3rd and the 5th Tests were drawn while England won the 4th Test match.
