"Bumrah is a baby bowler in front of me and I could have easily dominated him" : Abdul Razzaq

Recommended Posts

Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq believes that had he been active till now, he would not have had any problems in facing India's pace-sensation Jasprit Bumrah.

World No.1 ODI bowler Jasprit Bumrah is regarded as one of the best pacers of the current era and has become the linchpin of the Indian bowling unit in a short span of time.

Ever since making his Test debut in Cape Town in January 2018, Jasprit Bumrah has improved by leaps and bounds and is ranked no.5 in ICC Test rankings for bowlers.

Bumrah has been praised by many Cricket legends for his deadly Yorkers and lethal records but Abdul Razzaq believes Bumrah is a 'baby bowler' in comparison to yesteryear bowlers like Wasim Akram, Glenn McGrath, and Shoaib Akhtar.

"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.

Abdul Razzaq represented Pakistan in ODIs from 1996 to 2011. Razzaq was ranked as the World No.2 all-rounder in the early 2000s when the Pakistan all-rounder was in his prime.

"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," Razzaq further added.

However, former Pakistan all-rounder also praised Bumrah and said he is a good bowler among a current lot of players. Razzaq further credited Bumrah's unique bowling action for his success.

Speaking about Bumrah, Razzaq added, "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."
