In a very short span of time, Jasprit Bumrah has become India’s leading fast bowler across the three formats of the game. Right now, Bumrah is one of the unique bowlers who can bowl amazingly well at the start as well as in the death. Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq, who was Pakistan’s one of the most useful cricketers both with the bat and ball, has come up with a big contradicting statement on Bumrah.
“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,” quoted Abdul Razzaq.
Razzaq further noted that Bumrah is doing very well and has improved a lot in the recent times. The former Pakistan all-rounder revealed that Bumrah is much effective because of his unorthodox bowling actions and hits the seam perfectly. Razzaq also stated that Pakistan were just lucky to gain the No.1 position in the ICC T20I Rankings for teams.
“Bumrah is doing very well and has improved a lot. He has an awkward action and hits the seam perfectly, which is why he is effective,” he added.
“You can’t say we are No 1 because we are really good. Teams like India, England and Australia lost their matches and that helped us in securing the No 1 spot. We desperately need to improve our ranking in other formats and not just focus on player’s individual performances and averages,” Razzaq concluded.
