Now Paki skipper reveals being approached by bookie !!

Amidst ongoing efforts from Pakistan to host more matches on its soil, the country’s national team skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has disclosed that he turned down a lucrative offer from a bookmaker in Dubai during the ongoing ODI series against Sri Lanka.

He spoke of having reported the matter to the anti-corruption and security unit officials.

The incident has shaken the Pakistan team management and anti-corruption and security officials travelling with the team in the UAE.

They said that they expected such things should have stopped after bans were imposed on batsmen Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif for spot-fixing in Pakistan Super League.

“The matter has been handled as per standard procedure but there is a lot of respect for Sarfraz, who as a captain and player, has set a great example for his teammates on how to avoid attempts to corrupt the game,” an official of the Pakistan Cricket Board said on condition of anonymity.

“ICC rules don’t allow us to name player(s) in such cases where approaches are reported but yes Sarfraz got an offer and he immediately reported the matter to the concerned officials, who have taken appropriate action,” he added.
