The 42-year-old insinuated that Razzaq’s remarks about India’s pace spearhead were immature
India’s former opener-turned-cricket commentator Aakash Chopra, in a recent tweet, mocked Pakistan’s former all-rounder Abdul Razzaq after the latter’s controversial remarks about fast-bowler Jasprit Bumrah.
The 42-year-old insinuated that Razzaq’s remarks about India’s pace spearhead were immature by stating that growing up was optional.
“Another fine example of the fact that growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional. Well played,” Chopra tweeted.

Earlier, Razzaq, in an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan, had claimed that he would have had no difficulty in countering India’s death-bowling specialist Bumrah, if he was still playing international cricket.
“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,” 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.”
Razzaq’s statements have created a social media storm as the pacer’s fans continue to hit back against the former all-rounder.
