“Pakistan lacks stability in hitting and bowling,” Danish Kaneria says of Abdul Razzaq’s India-Pakistan comparison
Comparing the Indian and Pakistani cricket team, Pakistan’s interim head coach Abdul Razzaq recently said the latter is way ahead of India in talent. But it appears that former Pakistani leg spinner Danish Kaneria disagrees with him, as he called his statement “nonsense.” Rejecting Razzaq’s comments, Kaneria said there was no comparison between the two teams. The former cricketer pointed out how difficult it has become to put together a squad and even mentioned the series loss earlier this year in England when the majority of newcomers were playing in opposition. In one of the latest videos uploaded to his YouTube, Kaneria said Pakistan lacked stability in their sticks and pins, so he didn’t think the team were good enough.

Earlier, the interim head coach said that after dismissing Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma it would be easy to catch up with this Indian team. Criticizing Razzaq’s statement, Kaneria said how will they catch the Indian team, when there are problems to “form the Pakistani team” itself. He highlighted how England B team beat Pakistan A team.

Emphasizing the depth of the Indian cricket team, Kaneria said the team led by Kohli had the upper hand over Pakistan. For the record, Pakistan have never beaten India in any T20 or 50 overs World Cup match.
Searching Razzaq, he further said that such statements are not expected from a world-class cricketer whose stature is so high in Pakistan. “India has performed well in all departments. They have players like Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, etc. How are you going to get them out? he added.
At the upcoming T20 Men’s World Cup, India and Pakistan will meet in a T20 match since 2016 and the first white ball cricket match since 2019.
