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.
