Former Pakistan allrounder Abdul Razzaq has once again delivered a comment that is bound to make the Indian fans angry. In recent times, the legendary allrounder has developed a liking of taking shots at Indian cricket for no reason whatsoever. Just a few months ago, he had raised a number of eyebrows with his distasteful comments on Jasprit Bumrah and Virat Kohli.
Razzaq had taken shots at both Kohli and Bumrah and undermined their status as two of the biggest stars in the modern game. He said that while Kohli is a consistent batsman but he cannot be put in the same category as Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar. Razzak stated there is a dearth of world-class players in modern-day cricket and there is no strength in depth for teams across the world.
“If Virat Kohli scores, he scores. Yeah, he is a good player for them and is performing consistently, but you cannot place him in the same category as Sachin Tendulkar. He belongs to a different category,” Razzaq had said.
About Bumrah, the former cricketer said that called the India pacer a ‘baby bowler’ despite the latter being the number one ODI bowler. He also claimed he would have easily dominated Bumrah because of the quality of pacers he faced during his career, saying, “I have played world-class bowlers all across the world. I have no issues in facing Jasprit Bumrah. The pressure will be on him if I am in front of him. Because when you have faced bowlers like Glenn McGrath, Wasim Akram or Shoaib Akhtar, you gain confidence. Bumrah is a baby bowler for me. I can easily dominate him. Even he knows that this player has faced all these great bowlers in his time.”
Another absurd comment by Abdul Razzaq
Abdul Razzaq has now delivered another absurd comment. In his latest comment, he has taken a shot at the Indian Premier League (IPL), widely regarded as the best cricket league in the world by a mile. However, Razzaq feels that if a team of best players from IPL takes on a team comprising players from Pakistan Super League (PSL), the latter would win the game.
“If a team of the best players from the Indian Premier League faced a team made-up of the best players from the Pakistan Super League, the PSL team would win,” Abdul Razzaq was quoted as saying by Pakistani journalist Saj Sadiq in his tweet.
