Abdul Razzaq, the former all-rounder of Pakistan, has been making headlines for reasons not related to pure cricketing reasons since last year. He had also criticized Indian cricketers in the past.
He also offered to coach the Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya. And he has also highlighted the religion of fast bowler Mohammed Shami and took a sly dig at Virat Kohli.
Razzaq now says that – “The top XI players from the Pakistan Super League can beat the Indian Premier League’s top XI players. If there is a possibility of such a match being held between these two teams”.
He made these comments to a Pakistan journalist, Sah Sadiq, which was publicized. The journalist used the Twitter platform to post this message.
Abdul Razzaq "if a team of the best players from the Indian Premier League faced a team made-up of the best players from the Pakistan Super League, the PSL team would win" #Cricket

Here Is How Twitterati Reacted To Abdul Razzaq
In response to Razzaq’s comments, Twitter users in India did not shy away from severely criticizing the 40-year old.

Had always liked and respected Abdul Razzaq as a player but some of his comments don’t make sense! Well if there is a game, PSL XI could win – as we know anything can happen in cricket! However these comments are less about cricket and more to take potshots! https://t.co/zdAhGzSDDW

Pls don't compare IPL with cheap PSL …. IPL is one of the top 10 premier leagues in the world. Where as PSL is not on the top 100 even ….😂

A very useless claim… Of course as a Pakistani our first choice and most interesting league is PSL by any distance but it does not mean that IPL is not that competitive. At the moment IPL is best league to presence of all current stars.Accept the reality.thts a prob in Asia

yeah we can but if the match is played on planet Mars, because no doubt we have talent but we can't handle the pressure,we don't have strong nerves, we go into the ground with low confidence,morale down and the outcome is always predicted.
