Ex-cricketer Azharuddin's son Ayazuddin dead

Hyderabad: Ayazuddin, son of former cricketer and Moradabad MP Mohammad Azharuddin, succumbed to his injuries suffered in a road mishap on Friday. Ayazuddin was being treated at the Apollo Hospital in Hyderabad.

Ayazuddin (19) had sustained critical injuries after a sports bike, which he and his cousin Ajmal-ur-Rahman (16) were riding, skidded off the road at Puppalguda on the Outer Ring Road in Hyderabad on September 11 morning.

"Ayaz was on ventilator support for six days. He suffered heavy internal bleeding while his brain became dysfunctional yesterday. One of his kidneys was also removed through surgery. He died at 11.51 AM due to hypoxic encephalopathy (a condition when there is not enough oxygen getting into the brain)," said Apollo Hospital's CEO Hari Prasad.

Azharuddin and other relatives were on Ayaz s bedside when the end came, hospital sources said.

Ajmal, who was riding pillion, succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment.

Azharuddin who was in London at the time of accident had rushed back to India on hearing the news.

Ayazuddin was the younger son of Azharuddin with his first wife Naureen. Azharuddin later married Bollywood actress Sangeeta Bijlani. Azharuddin and Naureen's elder son Asaduddin is also a budding cricketer.

"Ayazuddin was an all-rounder. He was good at off-spin and also batting in the middle-order," his coach Maheshwar Singh said.

Ayazuddin, who was a student of BCom at St Mary's College in Hyderabad, initially played for East Marredpally Cricket Club (EMCC) and then shifted to State Bank of India (SBI). He had also played for Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet.

Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi said the burial will take place on Friday evening. He also asked the media to respect the family's privacy. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy visited the hospital along with some ministers.
