Not being satisfied with his comments on Jasprit Bumrah, former Pakistan cricketer Abdul Razzaq even had something to say about Virat Kohli.
The all-rounder feels the current Indian skipper is a consistent batsman but cannot be put in the same category as Sachin Tendulkar. According to Razzaq, players in modern-day cricket possess no strength-in-depth for teams across the world.
“If you speak to players from 1992 to 2007, they will tell you what cricket was,” Razzak said in the same video interview to Cricket Pakistan.
“There were world-class players at that time. Now there are no longer world-class players. There is no depth in bowling, batting or fielding. It is all basic now.”
“If Virat Kohli scores, he scores. Yeah, he is a good player for them and is performing consistently, but you cannot place him in the same category as Sachin Tendulkar. He belongs to a different category,” Razzaq added.
He had earlier spoken about Bumrah and called him a ‘baby bowler’. He said, “After having faced world-class bowlers in my time, I would have had no problem against a bowler like Bumrah. The pressure would have been on him,” Razzaq said.
