Banned Azharuddin turns his attention to fashion show


NEW DELHI, March 8 (AFP) - Disgraced former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin, who is serving a life ban from the game after being accused of match-fixing, has turned his attention towards organising a fashion show.

The 38-year-old will hold the show at a luxury hotel in his home city of Hyderabad on Sunday to raise funds for homeless clildren in the quake-ravaged state of Gujarat, friends of the cricketer said.

The show, featuring leading Indian models and designers, will be organised by an event management company recently launched by Azharuddin and his actress-wife Sangeeta Bijlani.

The company, known as Azhar-Sangeeta Management Services (ASMS), also plans to organise other events for fund-raising projects.

"He's not thinking of cricket matches just now, but looking at ways to raise money for the children who lost their families in the earthquake," Arun Rao, a close friend of Azharuddin said.

The cricketer himself has refused numerous media interviews since being named as one of prime suspects in a match-fixing proble conducted by India's Central Bureau of Investigation last November.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India later slapped a life ban on Azharuddin, a decision he has challenged in a civil court in Hyderabad.

The wristy strokeplayer was one match away from making his 100th Test appearance when the ban was imposed.

He has also played more one-day internationals (334) than any player in the world.
