Abdul Razzaq, the former Pakistan all-rounder, was a challenging bowler for the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. Tendulkar himself acknowledged this fact, and Razzaq modestly shared his thoughts on their encounters during ‘The Nadir Ali Podcast’.

Razzaq had the satisfaction of dismissing Tendulkar six times in ODIs. However, he couldn’t fathom why Tendulkar specifically mentioned him, as there were other renowned bowlers like McGrath, Akram, Younis, Ambrose, Walsh, Muralitharan, and Warne who could have been named. Razzaq humbly regarded Tendulkar’s choice of words as a testament to his greatness.

Despite his success against Tendulkar, Razzaq never boasted about it. He believed that being a “bunny” meant consistently troubling a batter, but he didn’t dwell on it excessively.

One of Razzaq’s most memorable moments was during the India-Pakistan Karachi Test in 2006 when he dismissed Tendulkar. Keeping things simple was his key to success against the renowned batsman.

Razzaq’s achievements as an all-rounder speak volumes about his skill. With 409 wickets in 343 matches across formats, he demonstrated his proficiency on the field.

In conclusion, the acknowledgment from a legendary batsman like Tendulkar reinforces Razzaq’s accuracy and talent as a bowler. Their encounters remain noteworthy in the world of cricket, and Razzaq’s career stands as a testament to his remarkable all-round abilities.
