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.
Celebrated All-rounder lauds his former IPL team-mate

Rahul Dravid’s 16-year-long cricketing career is an inspiring story of hard work, dedication and success. His recorded achievements have won him a place alongside the all-time sporting greats. But it is the respect he has earned among his own team-mates, and cricketing colleagues from across the world, that is his true legacy.
Jacques Kallis, all-rounder par excellence, raised a toast to Dravid in an exclusive chat with bcci.tv. “He has been a shining example of what a true servant to the game represents,” he said.
A hallmark of Dravid’s batting was the price he put on his wicket. Kallis, who bats with a similar doggedness, values this ability of his Indian counterpart. “He has one of the best techniques that I have seen. Once you got him out, you always felt that you had a chance [in the game].”
The two giants of the game shared dressing-room space at the Royal Challengers Bangalore for three years.
“He was a very quiet and kind man who always played the game in the right spirit. I was fortunate to play in a few games alongside him during the IPL,” the South African star said.
“What he has achieved in the game is incredible. He set high standards for himself and for India. The game will be poorer for not having him around but I’m sure he will enjoy his retirement; he deserves it and he will be missed.”
