Abdul Razzaq has claimed that he was involved in 'five-six' extramarital affairs in his life. The former Pakistan all-rounder added that such affairs had a validity of one or one-and-a-half year and that they feel good for a while, but the 'results' were not good.
Razzaq’s statement on a Pakistani news channel has been going viral. In the interview, the 39-year-old says that the clouds of love always hover over a man’s head. He says such feelings happen sometimes, and when asked if these clouds shower too, he quips that have been 'big storms.' The ex-cricketer then says that the relations were always mutual and that it wasn’t that he had proposed every time.
He is then asked how many times he’s been involved in such relationships, and he replies 5-6 times, which draws laughter from the studio audiences. Razzaq then added that such relations even have a ‘validity’ and it expires after one or one-and-a-half years. He said that it feels good till a point but the ‘result’ is not good.
He also smilingly says these relationships were after marriage when the anchor curiously asked him about it.

The cricketer is married to a woman named Ayesha though hoax reports of him marrying Tamannaah Bhatia had surfaced after an old picture of them had gone viral in 2013.
Raazaq scored 1946 runs and 5080 runs, took 100 wickets and 269 wickets respectively in Tests and ODIs and is considered among the finest all-rounders from Pakistan.
He had recently made headlines when he claimed that he could make Hardik Pandya the best all-rounder by training with him for two weeks, which got a fitting reply from Aakash Chopra.
His statement highlighting Mohammed Shami being a Muslim while praising the Indian bowling attack also got flak.
Before the World Cup, Razzaq had also shared what went on in the dressing room after the infamous spot-fixing scandal. He had stated that Mohammad Amir admitted his wrongdoing only after Shahid Afridi slapped him.
