Azhar's son in UP Vijay Hazare squad
The Uttar Pradesh one-day squad for the Vijay Hazare Trophy includes former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin's son Mohammad Asaduddin. The squad, which was announced on Friday, will be led by Piyush Chawla.
Asaduddin, also known as Abbas, was reportedly picked after appearing for trials at the state team's nets only last week. He is a left-hander, and was a part of the Hyderabad Under-22 squad in 2010. He is also believed to have appeared for trials for various IPL franchises without much success. The UP squad also includes 19-year-old left-arm chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav, who is yet to make a List A debut.
The Vijay Hazare Trophy will be held between November 6 and November 25 and UP will begin the tournament with a Central Zone game against Railways in Nagpur on November 7.
