New Delhi: Australian spin legend Shane Warne has been making headlines even after leaving cricket years back and with the upcoming release of his book ‘No Spin’, he is busy with promotions.
In one of the interviews with NDTV, the former leg-spinner revealed the name of a Pakistani player who offered him bribe.
“Saleem Malik offered me 200,000 US dollars. He said it will be in my room in half-an-hour if I bowl wide of the off-stump and the match was a draw. That’s the bottom line of what he asked,” said Warne.
When asked about the players he has high regards for, the Australian said, “Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara, easily, were the best batsmen of our generation, my time. If I want someone to score a hundred on the final day of the Test series, I would send Lara. But if I want someone to bat for my life day in, day out, I would send Tendulkar, he was a class act.”
