Jasprit Bumrah a baby bowler, I would have dominated him: Abdul Razzaq

Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has said that had he been active till now, he would have "easily dominated and attacked baby bowler" Jasprit Bumrah. 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. He will also miss the upcoming limited-overs assignment against West Indies starting December 6. "After having faced world class bowlers in my time, I would have had no problem against a bowler like Bumrah".

However, Razzaq was quick to praise the Indian's unique bowling action.

Talking about Razzaq's latest development, he said that he has approached the Pakistan Cricket Board, expressing his interest for a new coaching role with the country's U-19 team but his proposal has been rejected the board for now.

Razzaq acknowledged that Bumrah has been really effective so far and further added, "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".

"I would add that Bumrah is doing very well and has improved a lot". He last played for Pakistan in 2013 before being unceremoniously dropped from the set-up.

He said: "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".
