 Updated at: 1443 PST,  Friday, September 17, 2010
Irfan Pathan claims receiving expensive gifts from a stranger NEW DELHI: Indian pacer Irfan Pathan on Friday claimed that he was sent expensive gifts by a "stranger", suspected to be a bookie, during a series.

Although he did not disclose when exactly the incident happened and which team he was playing against at that time, Pathan said expensive gifts were sent to his hotel room during the series and he reported the matter to the team manager.

"I was in a team hotel when a stranger approached me. He sent three expensive gifts to my room. He later sent me two more expensive gifts, things I couldn't afford," the 25-year-old said.

"I haven't seen the stranger since then. I think I have done the right thing and I am proud of it. As a player you are expected to report any such thing as per the code of conduct," he said.
