Sorry Bollywood, The Truth About Azhar Lies in His Own Confessions

For the last 10 years, the silence of a pliant media, BCCI and cricketing community allowed Azhar to do all the talking. And unlike before, when the in-depth analysis on Azhar's CBI confessions were only available in the print media or nascent Indian internet, the "improved" version of his story has reached a much wider audience, thanks to increasing social media penetration and rent-a-mob Twitter and Facebook fans. Now, before the film Azhar becomes the pinnacle of his attempt to rewrite the story, it's time to dust off some facts.
