    Auction news surreal: Mahmood

    All-rounder ecstatic about KXIP’s winning bid

    Mumbai 12 March 2012
    All-rounder Azhar Mahmood, who has made a name for himself in England’s domestic circuit with Kent County Cricket Club, is now set to represent Kings XI Punjab at IPL 2012.

    Mahmood was ecstatic after being snapped up by KXIP in the IPL Player Auction 2012 for USD 200,000. The 37-year-old revealed that he only heard about the exciting news on microblogging site Twitter.

    "It was surreal finding out I'd been bought at the auction ¬– I actually found out on Twitter! People were saying Kings XI have bid for you but I didn't have a television picture or feed," Mahmood said.

    The former Pakistan international also expressed his excitement at playing amongst some of the best players in the world.
    "It'll be a great experience for me as a player. I've been around for a while but you're never too old to learn. I see it as a bit of a learning curve. Even if you are the best in the world, someone can teach you something and you can become better.

    "You pick stuff up and there's no better place to be than around some of the world's best cricketers. Even if you're 50, you can learn new stuff. Hopefully, that's what I can do," he said.
