IPL 2021 | Virat Kohli's RCB has performed brilliantly in IPL 2021. This team has made it to the top-3 of the points table by winning 8 out of 12 matches. In this success of the Bangalore franchise, such a player could not participate, who had won the hearts of cricket fans with his swashbuckling batting.

Azhar awaits IPL debut

We are talking about wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Azharuddin who was bought by RCB in the IPL 2021 auction for a base price of 20 lakhs, but surprisingly, Virat Kohli  did not include him in Bangalore's playing XI even once in the current season.

These 2 players cut Azhar's leaf

RCB already has a star wicketkeeper-batsman like AB de Villiers who is almost impossible to replace. Apart from this, as an extra wicketkeeper, Virat Kohli gave KS Bharat a chance in 5 matches. This is the reason why Mohammad Azharuddin has not been able to make his IPL debut yet.

Azhar scored a brilliant century in 37 balls

Mohammad Azharuddin came into the limelight after he completed his century in 37 balls in a match against Mumbai in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021. Azhar played a stormy innings of 137 runs in 54 balls. During this, 9 fours and 11 skyscraper sixes were hit.

Azhar showed his strength before the second phase

RCB played an intra-squad match before the second phase of IPL 2021, in which Mohammad Azharuddin scored 66 runs in 43 balls with the help of 4 fours and 3 sixes. . Azhar is yet to reap the benefits of this stellar performance. He may have to wait longer to debut in this mega T20.
