Abdul Razzaq, who is regarded as one of Pakistan’s finest all-rounders in history, has claimed that the Pakistan cricket team is capable of taking the number one spot across all formats.
The former all-rounder stated that the Pakistan team has been performing exceptionally well in recent times and they can give any team a run for their money.
“To be frank, I’m not just saying this because I’m from Pakistan, but we should be number 1 in the rankings. The way we are performing in all the three departments; batting, bowling, and fielding, we can see unity in this side,” said Razzaq.
The Pakistan team has delivered some terrific performances namely against Australia in the ODI series, whitewashing a touring West Indies side in both T20Is and ODIs and before that, reaching the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup.
Speaking about the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia, Razzaq said that Pakistan has the potential to finish at the top.
“I have full hopes that in the upcoming ICC tournaments, the Pakistan team will perform and finish at the top,” Razzaq added.
Babar is already ranked as the best batsman in limited-overs cricket, Razzaq believes he will soon secure the number one position in Test cricket based on his performances.
“It’s his time to deliver. He has been performing for the past 4-5 years. I hope that he will be able to continue with the same momentum and become number 1 across all formats,” he added.
Mentioning Babar’s performances against Australia and West Indies at home this year, Razzaq stated, “If he continues like this, it’s good for the Pakistan team and Pakistan cricket.”
