Former Pakistani cricketer Abdul Razzaq has rated Pakistan Super League (PSL) above the Indian Premier League (IPL). He recently said that if the best XI team of PSL is put up against the best XI team of IPL, the Pakistan franchise will come out on top.
“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,” Razzaq was quoted as saying by a Pakistani journalist Saj Sadiq.

This is not the first time Razzaq’s comments have got him in news. He had earlier called India’s premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah a ‘baby bowler’.
Razzaq believes Bumrah is nothing in comparison with bowlers like Wasim Akram, Glenn McGrath, and Shoaib Akhtar. The former Pakistan all-rounder added that smashing the Indian pacer would have been easier for him considering he has faced all-time great fast bowlers.
“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,” said Razzaq in an interview to Cricket Pakistan.
