Former Pakistan cricketer Abdul Razzaq believes that he would not have had any problems in dealing with Jasprit Bumrah, the current No.1 ODI bowler, if he had still been active till now.
Speaking to Cricket Pakistan, Razzaq said that many bowlers were better than Bumrah in his playing days.
“After having faced world-class bowlers in my time, I would have had no problem against a bowler like Bumrah. The 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.”
Having made his international debut in 1996, Razzaq represented Pakistan in 46 Tests, 265 ODIs, and 32 T20Is. In 2002, he also became the No.2 all-rounder in the world.
Talking about Bumrah, Razzaq further said, “Bumrah is doing very well and has improved a lot. He has an awkward action and hits the seam perfectly, which is why he is effective.”
