Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has revealed that he was offered 50 crores by Indian bookies back in 1999.

While speaking exclusively in the program ‘Bouncer’ on ARY News, Razzaq said there was no such rule to report the offers back in those days but the all-rounder had warned the bookies to not approach him again.

“Indian bookies offered me to join them for 50 crores. The offer was made in India,” he said. “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.”

“I belong to a family where children are taught honesty. We have always learned to earn and eat Halal. So, nobody can buy me,” he added. Razzaq represented Pakistan in 46 Tests, 265 ODIs and 32 T20Is.
