    Pakistan’s former all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has sparked debate after yet another controversial statement.

    According to details, Razzaq has touted a team made up of best players from the Pakistan Super League (PSL) to overpower a similar lineup from the Indian Premier League (IPL).

    “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 said.

    Earlier, Razzaq’s comments about Indian fast-bowler Jasprit Bumrah also had not gone down well with the pacer’s fans.

    Razzaq, in an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan, had claimed that he would have had no difficulty in countering India’s death-bowling specialist Bumrah, if he was still playing international cricket.

    “After having faced world class bowlers in my time, I would have had no problem against a bowler like Bumrah. Pressure would have been on him,” said Razzaq. “I have played against great bowlers like Glenn Mcgrath and Wasim Akram, so Bumrah is a baby bowler in front of me and I could have easily dominated and attacked him.”

    His remarks, in the same interview, about Indian captain Virat Kohli also raised eyebrows.

    “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,” he said.

      Not true. I just did I quick analysis.
      In Batting top 10 of PSL have average of 34.169 with strike rate of 137.48 while IPL top 10 has average of 44.773 with strike rate of 148.753.
      In Bowling: op 10 of PSL have average of 19.138 with economy of 7.485 while IPL top 10 has average of 19.495 with economy of 7.393.

      Bowling is not that far from each but batting clearly is higher. So if you pick top from each, IPL will make more runs and mange to win as bowling is almost same for both.

      Wrong!! Pakistan's best would beat India's best in a 3 test or 5 tests series!! We are the best team of the world in the test format whereas we are the worst in other formats!!

      Only format that matters to me is test cricket. Odis are good and t20 is just like wrestling. Its not cricket in my opinion. I love to see balance between bat and ball and Karachi pitch in the Sri Lanka test series was the best since Karachi Pitch in 2006 India test series!!

      T20s should always be played on phattas. The crowd comes to see fours and sixes not a 100 all out borefest.

      And still how will PSL team win on supporting pitches? IPL has the current and best international bowlers. The foreign talent of PSL vs IPL is apples vs oranges.

      Zaroorat se ziada koi bhi cheez ho maza khatam ho jata hai ziada 6 and 4s bhi boring lagne lag jate hein aur team low scores per out ho jayein to bhi maza nahi aata!! Karachi pitch in that sri lanka test match was the best wicket i saw in last 14 years since that historic Karachi test in 2006 in which Mohd Asif made Sachin Tendulkar and Indias greatest bow down to his greatness!! This was the best wicket to play on as it had something for everyone be it bowlers, batsmen, spinners, fast bowlers. It was a sporting wicket which is what the crowd wants - a healthy competition between bat and ball!! And in my opinion, T20 format should be scrapped as it has become just a commercial exercise!! It is not doing the game any good!!

      I don't think current Pakistan team would win even a single Test or ODI against current Indian team. We need to stop living in the past and only when we admit the truth of current situation we can take steps to improve.

      It will be whitewash in all 3. Currently Pakistan does not have bowlers to take 20 wickets of Indian team in a Test.

      Australia mein yeh bowling attack settle nahi hua tha! It was the 1st series after World Cup! Now, we know who our premier bowlers are! Imran Khan snr should be dropped for next series and Harris Rauf must replace him in test squad!! Abbas, Shaheen, Yasir Shah and Naseem Shah are our best bowlers and Harris Rauf, Usman Shinwari and Shadab Khan should be part of the reserves!! Sri Lankan series mein we were able to find out our best bowling combination!! Australia series mein Imran Khan snr aur Musa Khan ki performance were not upto the mark, I mean they performed according to their talent which was not good enough in those conditions!! But, with experience they will learn and become better bowlers!! Dont forget Musa was making his debut and Abbas did not play the 1st test of the series!! Naseem only played 1 test!!

      Shaheen and Naseem may be effective, I doubt Abbas, Yasir Shah and Harris Sohail be effective against current Indian batting. Also the pitch will have not impact as well, as India plays on similar pitches. Plus our batting is not up to the mark.

      Abbas is our main bowler imo./ Abbas played the most important role in Karachi test in my opinion as when Pakistan had been bowled out for a low total, he started the Sri Lankan slide early on which meant that Sri Lanka could not get a big total on the board which brought Pakistan back into the game!! Inform Abbas is our biggest asset in test cricket imo. And Yasir Shah was also finding his form back. Indians play spin well but in test cricket, Yasir Shah is a force to reckon with and should be backed in my opinion!!

      Indian batting maybe a lot stronger but we have faced India at a time when India had fab 4 and Pakistan had just Mohd Sami and Shahid Afridi and Danish Kaneria in our ranks and we beat them!!

      But we had, Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf & Misbah-ul-Haq and now none of that level. Also India did not had I Sharma, UT Yadav, Mohammed Shami & Bumrah.
      I love Pak as well but it is the reality that currently we are not on par with India.

Tests mein humare pass Fawad Alam, Harris Sohail, Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq, Babar Azam aur Abid Ali batting mein hein aur bowling bhi kaafi strong hai with Abbas, Shaheen, Yasir Shah, Naseem, Shinwari, Rauf and Shadab!!

      That was Pre- World Cup 11 which was No. 7 in the rankings. World Cup ke baad jo Misbah ke under mein playing 11 aur squad set ho raha hai ahiste ahiste yeh World No. 1 test ranking achieve kar lega aur i am 100 per cent sure agar Misbah 2023 WC tak Coach raha to we will win 2023 WC!!

      World Cup ke baad kafi players discover hue hein specially test format mein. Among them significant are Abid Ali, Naseem Shah, Musa Khan (he will develop too in future), Usman Shinwari (there is room for improvement here too and he will improve too), new Babar Azam that has emerged after successful world cup! Azhar has somewhat regained his form, Harris was sensational during WC, return of Fawad Alam. So, there are encouraging signs for us!!
