Pacers Shaheen Afridi and Jasprit Bumrah are the top pacers in the subcontinent. Bumrah has 128 wickets in 30 Tests and 121 in 72 ODIs, and 70 in 60 T20Is.

"Shaheen is excellent. Bumrah doesn't come near him," Abdul Razzaq said in an exclusive interview.
When asked who was better among Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, and Shaheen, Razzaq replied: "All three are good."
Bumrah is not in the squad for the first 2 Tests, and the medical team is monitoring his return.
"About Bumrah, I am not too sure at the moment. Of course, he will not be available for the first two Test matches. I am expecting...I am hoping, not expecting, that he plays the next (last) two Test matches (against Australia). We don't want to take risks with him, as back injuries are always critical. We have a lot of cricket coming back after that," Rohit said recently.
"We are in constant touch with physios and doctors in NCA. We will monitor. The medical team will give him as much time as he wants," he added.
