Bombay, Republic of India
MEMBERS OF A CRICKET ORGANISATION HANG AN EFFIGY OF MOHAMMAD AZHARUDDIN IN BOMBAY.
Members of a private organisation that organises children's cricket camps in Bombay beat an effigy of former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin during a protest against match fixing November 8, 2000. A Central Bureau of Investigations report has accused Azharuddin, keeper Nayan Mongia, all rounder Ajay Jadeja, batsman Ajay Sharma and bowler Manok Prabhakar of taking money from bookies to fix international matches. Bombay is considered to be the cricket capital of India and residents take cricket very seriously.
