“Indian bookies offered me to join them for 50 crores. The offer was made in India,” the cricketer shared. “See, at that time, no rule was defined whether to report such offers. But, yes I warned them to not approach me again otherwise I would report them.”
“Pakistan Players Have More Talent Than Indians” – Abdul Razzaq
