Mohammed Azharuddin, former India captain, shared pictures on Twitter of his green scooter from his “early career days”. He revealed how the scooter was given to him as an “acknowledgment” of his talent. Azharuddin stated that riding a scooter was a “great luxury” as compared to going to the stadium cycling or on foot. The post was captioned, “Fond memories of my early career days when I got this scooter as an acknowledgment of my talent. It was a great luxury as compared to walking or on some lucky days cycling for miles to reach the practice stadium in the wee hours.”
