Jasprit Bumrah is a baby bowler in front of me - Abdul Razzaq

Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah"Baby Bowler, One I Could

"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 was quoted as saying by Pak Passion. Recovering from an injury that has kept him out of the game for some time, Bumrah is working on his strength and fitness under Delhi Capitals trainer Rajnikanth Sivagnanam.

The 40-year-old remarked that the pressure would be on Bumrah in the death overs. The paceman has been a substantial bowler for the Indian national cricket team and is now ranked No.1 in ODIs and No.5 in Tests. According to Abdul Razzaq, he has faced great bowlers like Glenn McGrath in his prime and if he were to face Bumrah today, he wouldn't have any problem in countering him and also termed India's best with the ball as the "baby bowler".

Speaking about Bumrah, Razzaq added, "Bumrah is doing very well and has improved a lot".

Former Pakistan cricketer Abdul Razzaq was one of the best all-rounders- especially in white-ball cricket- during his playing days. He last played for Pakistan in 2013 before being unceremoniously dropped from the set-up. The new-look team were completely outclassed by Australia in their recent tour.

"We were struggling to qualify for the World Cup, our Test ranking has gone down and we are lucky to be number one in Twenty20 Internationals. We desperately need to improve our ranking in other formats and not just focus on player's individual performances and averages".
