Former Pakistani cricketer Abdul Razzak has confirmed that he is not dead and he is alive. Razzak took to Youtube to share this message with his fans after rumours of him dead started making the rounds.

Apparently, it was a Facebook post that started things.

“Hi everyone, I am Abdul Razzaq. Someone has spread the rumours on Facebook stating that I died in an accident. But the highly-talked about post, can no longer be found on the same social platform anymore. This is not called for and no one has the right to spread such fake news. Such rumours should not be spread on social media. I am very much fit and fine by the grace of God,” he said in the video.

It is a video made by the former Pakistan all-rounder Razzak, which has been shared by noted Pakistani journalist Saj Sadiq.

Recently, the all-rounder faced flak on social space after claiming that Ahmed Shehzad was a better batsman than Virat Kohli and Virender Sehwag during a panel discussion on a Pakistani news channel. Unfortunately, Shehzad has been found positive in the dope test conducted by PCB and is set to get banned for at least three months.

The 38-year-old all-rounder has played 46 Tests and 265 ODIs, amassing 1946 and 5080 runs respectively. He also was a handy bowler in the middle overs for Pakistan where he picked up 100 Test scalps and 269 ODI wickets.
