Reactions to Vinod Kambli’s match-fixing allegations keep pouring in from all quarters.
Vaibhav Purandare, in a hard-hitting article for the Hindustan Times, points out that Mohammad Azharuddin’s comments deriding Kambli “are in poor taste.”
(The article is not available online—yet).
Though I am not in agreement with Purandare’s professed opinion on other topics (more about that later), I am in sync on this.
Kambli comes from a backward caste; he was unconventional, even Calypsonian, in his approach to the game.
He was once termed the only West Indian in the Indian side.
