“Don’t smoke cheap weed” Fans Blast Abdul Razzaq for “PAK Cricket Has More Talent than India” comment


The Pakistan cricket players have been in controversy regarding their off-field comments. The former player Shahid Afridi has been pro-active in his comments for the Kashmir-related issue. He has received flak by the Indian people many times on Twitter. A month ago, Hafeez praised the Indian team for their inspiring performance against Australia in the test series. He said that even after so many injury concerns, the Indian team won the series by their bench strength and Pakistan Cricket should learn something from this series. In this article, we will be talking about the comments made by Abdul Razzaq.

Abdul Razzaq: PAK Cricket Has More Talent than India

The former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has made news headlines after he made a comment that Pakistan Cricket has more talent than India.  “Firstly, we should not say such a thing [compare Virat Kohli with Babar Azam]. You can’t compare Indian players with Pakistan players because Pakistan has more talent. Virat Kohli and Babar Azam are completely different players. If we want to compare the two, then it’s important to hold matches between Pakistan and India and then judge who is a better player,” said Razzaq.

“If you look at our history, we have so many great players who we can draw comparisons like Mohammad Yousaf, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Saeed Anwar, Javed Miandad, Zaheer Abbas, and Ijaz Ahmed,” added Razzaq. He further said that Pakistan should not compare its players with their Indian counterparts if the latter does not do the same. “Virat Kohli is a good player and he has performed well against Pakistan. I have nothing against him but if Indians don’t compare their players with Pakistan, then we shouldn’t do that as well,” Razzaq stated.

After these comments, these were the replies on Twitter:
