Jones And His Honesty 

Not just an amazing cricketer, but he was also a man of principles. The truthfulness he had was also something that inspires people around the world. In a YouTube interview, we found out about how he reacted after he was approached by a bookmaker. 

It was the time in the 90s when this incident took place. Jones revealed that an Indian bookmaker came to him and tried to make a deal. The man was MK Gupta who approached him and offered him a sum in exchange for some information. 

When Gupta approached Jones, he was offered an amount of $50,000. This huge amount was just for some insights from the Aussie dressing room. He wanted to know about fitness, players’ strategies, and more. Jones clearly denied the offer. 

After the denial of Jones, Gupta raised the offer price to $66,000. Jones told us that he had all the offer money in a cake tin can. All those notes for such a huge amount. Jones is a man of his principles denied him again. 

Jones’ denial was polite and then he went on to report what happened to him to Allan Border. He also informed the Aussie management about the same. 

We should learn from him and take inspiration to stand tough and honest in such situations. Stay connected to us for more!
