Abdul Razzaq said in an interview – I faced bowlers like Akram, Shoaib Akhtar. Bumrah is a baby bowler
Irfan Pathan responds to Razzaq by referring to Javed Miandad's old statement
Miandad said in 2006 that bowlers like Irfan play in our street.
Dainik BhaskarDec 06, 2019, 03:23 PM IST Sports Desk. Pakistani all-rounder Abdul Razzaq recently described Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah as a baby bowler. Irfan Pathan has responded to this statement by tweeting it.
Referring to the old statement of former Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad, he said, "Bowlers like Irfan are found in our street." But whenever these street bowlers played in front of them, they removed their gills. Request from all fans ignore such statements. Just read and smile.
"Irfan jese bowlers hamari gali gali mein paae jate hay" par jab jab ye galli bowler inke samne khela har baar inki gilliyan nikal ke rakh di. Request to all fans not to pay any heat to those unnecessary over the top statements. Just read and 😃 …. #bumrah #ViratKohli
