Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has made a habit of making controversial comments on Indian Cricket players and Indian Cricket. For the umpteenth time he has tried to do so and every time he has been taken to the task by Indian and World Cricket fans for non-sensible comments.
Abdul Razzaq first offered to coach premier Indian fast bowling all-rounder Hardik Pandya then he went onto comment on the religion of Mohammad Shami before taking a sly dig at Indian captain Virat Kohli. Recently in December 2019 he also called world’s best all format bowler Jasprit Bumrah a ‘baby bowler’ before boasting himself and just a day before he also made comments on IPL also.
In the latest episode of his nonsense speaking sense (wink), Abdul Razzaq has claimed that Indian captain Virat Kohli is very lucky because BCCI supports him well and this is the reason behind his success.
In an interview with Times Now Razzaq quoted, “He [Virat Kohli] is a fantastic player and there is no doubt about it. However, he is lucky as the BCCI supports him well and instils the confidence in him that any player needs to succeed. The respect he gets from his board is what probably inspires him to do well all the time and the results are there for all to see.”
However, the Pakistani all-rounder did not stop just here and he went on to claim that if Pakistan Cricket Board supports the talent in the same way as BCCI Pakistani batsmen can surpass the Indian Captain.
“I do believe that even in Pakistan we have players who could become better than Virat Kohli, but they are neglected by our system which is a tragedy. In Kohli’s case, he has taken that confidence shown in him by the board and using his talent, repaid them with his performances,” Razzaq further added.
However, this looks like more of an exaggerated statement and despite producing so many talented players like Salman Butt and Babar Azam in the recent years, no one comes close to Virat Kohli in terms of what the Indian Captain has achieved.
