Karachi, Aug. 10 (ANI): Pakistan cricket captain Younis Khan has rebuffed match-fixing allegations levelled against his side saying that his team-mates earn well enough not to participate in corrupt practices for extra money.

The News quoted Younis as saying that match-fixing might have been possible in the 80s and 90s, as players could be lured into corrupt practices because of lower wages.

"Now, a player earns around seven to eight hundred thousand rupees per match. So, I don't think he needs to get involved in such things. I am thankful to God for what he has given me. I wouldn't like to earn my living by sacrificing my self respect and honour," he said. (ANI)
