Hyderabad: Former Indian cricket captain Mohd. Azharuddin is all set to join the arena of politics, reports suggested on Tuesday.

Azharuddin might contest elections on a ticket from Congress and stand from his hometown Hyderabad. He has a huge fan-following there despite his premature exit from the world of cricket following allegations of match fixing in the late 90s.

Azhar has kept a low profile since his exit from the Indian cricket scene and runs a successful event management firm.
