India Can’t Compete With Pakistan Says Abdul Razzaq
Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq believes that despite being a bigger country than Pakistan, India has produced less talented cricketers. According to him, India can’t compete with Pakistan and is afraid of a Pak-India series as it does not have a talented cricketer like Pakistan.
The last time Pakistan played a bilateral series in white-ball cricket was in 2013. The last time the two teams met in red-ball cricket was in 2006. Since then, the two teams have only faced each other in global and continental tournaments due to political rivalries.
Abdul Razzaq does not accept that the only political enmity of not playing a bilateral series. According to him, India is unable to play with Pakistan due to a lack of talented cricketers.
Abdul Razzaq said this in an interview given to Pakistani media. At the time, he said, “I don’t think India will be able to fight Pakistan on the field in any way. India does not have as much talent as Pakistan.
Razzak feels that the long-running India-Pakistan series is becoming detrimental to cricket. According to him, it is through the fight between these two teams that one can understand how much pressure a cricketer can take.
Razzak said, ‘India-Pakistan match is a big loss for cricket. The big test is how much pressure the cricketers can take in the match between these two teams. If there was a fight between the two teams, then people would understand why the Pak-India series does not take place. India understands things well. Because there is no cricketer in India to handle the pressure in the match against Pakistan.
Considering the past battles, Razzaq claimed that Pakistan was well ahead of the Indian team. “The Indian team was good too, it cannot be denied,” he said. Compared to Imran Khan and Kapil Dev, Imran was a much better cricketer. Wasim Akram was not a quality cricketer in India. Also in our team were Inzamam, Yusuf, Younis, Afridi. They only had Dravid-Sehwag. Overall, Pakistan had more talent than India.
The Pak-India match will be played on October 24 in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021. Pakistan has yet to beat India in any ICC World Cup.
