The former Pakistani all-rounder Abdul Razzaq comes up with a critical statement on Jasprit Bumrah. ‘Bumrah nowhere close to Shaheen’s level’ – Abdul Razzaq makes a massive comment on India Star.
The two pace spearheads of India and Pakistan have been sidelined from cricket due to injuries for a while now. Jasprit Bumrah has been out from International cricket due to a back injury that is hindering him for a long time now.
Jasprit Bumrah missed the T20 World Cup 2022 and Asia Cup back injury
The 29-year-old has never been able to recover since he hurt his back for the first time back in 2019. Bumrah was out for 3 months in 2019 due to a back injury. In 2022 Bumrah only played just 5 games for team India across formats along with 14 Indian Premier League games.
Jasprit Bumrah missed the Asia Cup 2022 in August as the Indian team wanted their ace pacer to be fit for the T20 World Cup 2022. After the completion of the Asia Cup India hosted a 3-match T20 series just before the T20 World Cup. Bumrah played the last 2 games of the series in which his injury aggravated.

Pakistani left-arm quick is one of the best bowlers in the world currently. His comeback is highly anticipated by Pakistani fans as he is the backbone of their bowling.
Shaheen was also forced to miss the Asia Cup 2022 to make sure he remains fit for the T20 World Cup 2022. Shaheen did take part in the tournament but was unfortunately ruled out as he injured his knee again while taking a catch.

It’s not the first time when Razzaq has taken a toll on Bumrah. Back in 2019 when Bumrah was at the peak of his powers, Razzaq didn’t feel shy to criticize him. He referred to the Indian pace maestro as a ‘Baby bowler’.
Razzaq said “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,”
