“Even though I am not interested in politics, based on the request made by the President, I am introducing my brother to represent the upcoming General Election’ he had said.
“As a cricketer I have been able to extend a lot of help to the public. My brother and I will never require money for ourselves. If we require money it will be for the benefit of the public”, he added.
