Former Pakistan cricketer Abdul Razzaq on Wednesday spoke on India’s leading pacer Jasprit Bumrah, calling him a baby bowler when comparing him to himself. Having played with the some of the world legendary players’ in his time, Razzaq feels that he would have no problems with Bumrah on the other side of the pitch.
Razzaq who in his cricketing career played 32 T20Is, 265 One Day Internationals and 46 Tests.
“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,” Razzaq said in a news report.
“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,” he added.
Speaking on Bumrah’s current form Razzaq continued, “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.”
Presently, Bumrah is undergoing training after recovering from his back injury that he sustained in September which had kept him away from cricket.
