‘Shaheen is no less. In fact, he has more pace’ Salman Butt Ex-Pakistan captain On Bumrah No 1 ICC Ranked Bowler



Jasprit Bumrah after his cricketing best of 6 for 19 deliveries against England in the 1st ODI that took place in ‘The Oval’ many legendary cricketers showered praise on the 28-year-old cricketer. In showering praise, the former captain of England was the first to set the trend, and echoing him, were others like Sachin Tendulkar, Wasim Jaffer, and Bharat Arun, who said while speaking to TOI,

“The movement that he got today was outstanding, Not many get to move the white ball so consistently and that too or an extended period of time”

He further added,

“He bowled in terrific areas”

 The master blaster Sachin Tendulkar said,

“The Oval pitch has great bounce but Indian bowlers bowled the right lengths & that made all the difference. A great bowling performance by India’s pace attack especially Bumrah who was just phenomenal.”



Amidst of all these players, there are still ones who don’t like anything else and just their own irrespective of whether there is a comparison to be made or not.


We are here talking about the former captain of Pakistan Salman Butt who while speaking on his own YouTube Channel, said the 22-year-old Shaheen is no less than Jasprit Bumrah. Look at what he said in his own words below:


“See, Shaheen hasn’t played as much cricket but he is among the very best. He is no less than him (Bumrah). In fact, Shaheen with experience, will only get better and then he has more pace and offers a different angle. See, both are world cricket’s finest and watching them bowl is an exciting experience. It’s great fun to watch both Bumrah and Shaheen perform, and the way they bowl with the new ball it feels as if a wicket can go down anytime. You don’t get this feeling watching any other bowler,” 

He further added,

“Nonetheless, for a 20-year-old bowler to perform in the manner that he has is not easy. Both are outstanding. Obviously, Bumrah has played a lot more and is a brilliant performer so at the moment, there shouldn’t be any comparison. One has played a lot, the other not so much,”

So you see the unwanted comparison the former cricketer is trying to make here. The interesting thing in this statement is that he’s agreeing that he (Shaheen) hasn’t played much more cricket than Bumrah, but still has to be brought for comparison when not needed.


Well, we leave it up to you to what you think and how you take it, but to remind you the Asia Cup is just at the doorsteps and probably in one of the matches in there, India and Pakistan, the arch-rivals would be clashing against each other, and which indeed will be an interesting one…
