Former Pakistan allrounder Abdul Razzaq has been known for making the headlines due to his controversial statements lately. A few days ago Razza was quoted saying that India's frontline pacer Jasprit Bumrah is a “baby bowler” and can be taken apart quite easily.
“I have played world-class bowlers all across the world. I have no issues in facing Jasprit Bumrah. The pressure will be on him if I am in front of him. Because when you have faced bowlers like Glenn McGrath, Wasim Akram or Shoaib Akhtar, you gain confidence. Bumrah is a baby bowler for me. I can easily dominate him. Even he knows that this player has faced all these great bowlers in his time.”
Abdul Razzaq was on the receiving end of a backlash on social media which did shush him for a while. However, the former allrounder is now back with yet another ‘one of kind' comment that focused on the most-watched cricketing league in the world, the Indian Premier League (IPL).
According to Abdul Razzaq, if a match takes place between the players from the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the Pakistan Super League (PSL) it would be the PSL team which would be emerging as the winners.
“If a team of the best players from the Indian Premier League faced a team made-up of the best players from the Pakistan Super League, the PSL team would win,” Razzaq was quoted saying.
Some of the Indian cricket fans took notice of Razzaq's statement and send in ridiculed his thoughts through humour.
With Abdul Razzaq being a constant in making absurd quotes, only time will tell when the next valuable insight will be out in the open.
Hypothetically speaking, if a T20 game does take place between a PSL XI and an IPL XI team, this is how the teams could shape up.
PSL XI: Shane Watson, Kamran Akmal (wk), Babar Azam, AB de Villiers (c), Colin Ingram, Asif Ali, Kieron Pollard, Faheem Ashraf, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Umer Khan
