Former Pakistan cricketer Abdul Razzaq has once again given a big statement on India's star pacer Jasprit Bumrah. Razzaq, who played for Pakistan from 1996 to 2013, has compared two giant fast bowlers of India and Pakistan. With the status that Jasprit Bumrah and Shaheen Afridi have achieved, experts usually talk about the impact they create in their respective teams. 

The 43-year-old Razzaq has stated that Shaheen Afridi is a way better bowler than Jasprit Bumrah and the Indian pacer is nowhere close to Shaheen Afridi's level. Speaking with a local news channel, Razzaq said, "Shaheen Afridi is way better than Jasprit Bumrah. Bumrah is nowhere close to Shaheen's level."

Meanwhile, this is not the first time that Razzaq has opened up on Jasprit Bumrah. In 2019, the former Pakistan batter had stated that Jasprit Bumrah is a baby bowler. "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 had said to Cricket Pakistan in 2019.
