Abdul Razzaq is a former Pakistani all-rounder who has been away from the cricket field since 2018. However, the 40-year-old from Lahore has grabbed the cricket universe’s attention by making some massive statements.

These statements are very controversial and the fans believe that Razzaq is doing it on purpose just to gain the spotlight. Since India and Pakistan have been arch-rivals in the world of cricket, Razzaq’s testimonies often related to the Men in Blue.

In this article, we will have a look at the top 5 controversial statements made by Abdul Razzaq so far:

Firing a shot at the success of the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, Razzaq said that Kohli is a lucky player because he has the back of India’s cricket governing body, BCCI. As per Razzaq, Pakistan could have produced players better than Kohli had they got the support from Pakistan Cricket Board.

He told PakPassion.net that, “Virat Kohli is a fantastic player and there is no doubt about it. However, he is lucky as the BCCI supports him well and instils the confidence in him that any player needs to succeed.”

He further added that the respect that he gets from the board inspires him to perform better and there are a plethora of players in Pakistan who have the potential to make it bigger than Virat Kohli yet they are not receiving proper support from the board. Every cricket fan knows that Kohli himself has worked hard on his fitness hence, it made little sense to involve BCCI here.
