Former Pakistan all-rounder had claimed that he would have had no difficulty in countering India’s death-bowling specialist
Abdul Razzaq’s recent statement about Indian fast-bowler Jasprit Bumrah didn’t go down well with the pacer’s fans, as they hit back at the former Pakistan all-rounder on social media.
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.”
Indian users on Twitter took this opportunity to ridicule Razzaq’s batting record.
He's the same guy who got out 5 times to Jayasuriya, 3 times to Sachin, 3 times to Steven Elworthy! Couldn't handle a slow ball from Munaf years ago, Even Wasim Akram has accepted that Jasprit Bumrah has the best Yorker in the world but he's teaching that Bumrah is no special.— Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) December 4, 2019

Dear Abdul Razzaq,— Dr anjali (@cricketdoctor) December 4, 2019
Your batting average is less than 30 in every format of game and you are thinking that You can dominate JASPREET BUMRAH 😂😂😂
Don't create problems for your youngster team by such statements#Bumrah #Razzaq
Even though I loved Abdul Razzaq and he was one of the most clean hitters at his peak, Bumrah is a very very smart bowler!! He could just keep bowling full length to AR legs and that's it.. https://t.co/4NKujE6ld4— Hasnat (@manbehindstumpz) December 4, 2019
