Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin on Friday posted on social media a series of pictures of him riding an old but seemingly well-maintained scooter, which someone presented to him in "acknowledgment of my talent".

"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 practise stadium in the wee hours," tweeted the stylish right-handed batsman, who played 99 Tests, captaining India in 47 of those matches.

His name, Azar, is prominently painted on the headlight of the green-painted scooter while the upholstery and the seat covers indicate that he continues to carefully maintain his prized possession from his early days as a cricketer.
