PAK vs AUS: Shoaib Akhtar, a former Pakistani pacer, believes that wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan would be remembered for years to come for the way he has made the most of his restricted ability to produce innings. Against Australia in the second Test, the 29-year-old hit an amazing undefeated century (104*) in the fourth innings. He saved Pakistan from a crushing loss and win a draw for his country.
When it comes to the international level, Rizwan has been incredibly consistent throughout formats. Hee is in second on the list of best run-scorers in the PSL 2022 season. The right-hander has elevated his batting to a new level in recent years. Particularly in the past two to three years. He was particularly good during the T20 World Cup last year. Throughout his career, his ability to consistently identify gaps has paid off, and he is now regarded as one of the top wicketkeeper-batters in the world.
PAK vs AUS: During the previous five years, Mohammad Rizwan has accomplished incredible things: Shoaib Akhtar
It was remarked by Akhtar that Rizwan has been at his absolute best for Pakistan in the previous few years. He reminded the audience of Shane Warne’s comments on how the game should be played. He commended Rizwan for the determination he displays on the field even though he has just a limited number of shots under his belt. Akhtar predicted that the latter will stay in the hearts of the supporters for a long time.
“The fact that Rizwan seems to be under no pressure says a lot about him. For the last several years, he has been doing wonders for the team. He has established himself as a key component of the squad,” Akhtar said on his YouTube channel.
“The late Shane Warne used to tell me that it is not about how many wickets you have taken, but rather it is about the way you played the game. People will remember you for the way you played the game. People will remember Rizwan for years to come if he continues to perform in this manner. He is quite restricted, but it is all about purpose. Almighty Allah is showering him with all of the honour and respect he deserves,” he said.
Pakistan and Australia will play the last Test of their three-match Test series on the 21st of March, after two draws in the first two matches.
