New Delhi. Former Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria has hit back at Pakistan’s interim head coach Abdul Razzaq for his recent comments on the Indian cricket team. The former Pakistan all-rounder had said that Pakistan is far ahead of India in terms of talent. He also talked about the T20 World Cup match between the two arch-rivals later this month. Kaneria dismissed the comments made by Razzaq. He said that there is really no comparison between India and Pakistan. He called Razzaq’s statements ‘nonsense’.
The former spinner said that he does not think that Pakistan’s team is good enough and also emphasized that it was difficult to build a team together. He also referred to the series defeat in England earlier this year, when most of the freshmen played for the opposition. Kaneria said on his YouTube channel, “Pakistan’s batting and bowling are not stable. Razzaq says get Kohli and Rohit out and it will be easy to beat this Indian team. Crap, how are you going to beat this Indian team? There are problems in making Pakistan’s team. Where is your batting, who will win your matches? England’s B team beat us. The selection looks bad, it’s a very bad statement.”
The former Pakistan spinner further commented and said that a player who is respected in Pakistan should not make such remarks. He also emphasized on the depth of the Indian team and said that they have pressure on Pakistan. It should also be noted that Pakistan has never defeated India in any World Cup match, neither in T20 nor in 50 overs.
Danish Kaneria said, “It was not expected from an international level cricketer, whose stature is so high in Pakistan. India is far above Pakistan. India is performing well in every department. They have players like Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya etc, how will you get them out?
Talking about the match between Pakistan and India, the fans are very excited about this match. Recently tickets for Dubai International Cricket Stadium were put up for sale and all these were sold out within a few hours. This will be the first time that India and Pakistan will meet in a T20 match since 2016 and the first white-ball cricket match since 2019.
