Mohammad Rizwan, the wicket-keeper-batsman of the national team, said that the success of the first match of the series gives confidence to the team as well as momentum.
He said that after winning the Test series, they won the first match of the T20 series, which has boosted the morale of the players.
“I also won the last T20 match of the series against New Zealand, so I think the momentum is there, we will try to take it forward,” he said.
Mohammad Rizwan played a key role in Pakistan’s victory in the first T20 match against South Africa and Pakistan won by three runs.
Mohammad Rizwan played an unbeaten innings of 104 off 64 balls with a strike rate of 162.5. His innings included 7 sixes and 6 fours and he was declared the Player of the Match.
Mohammad Rizwan said that when you make something your goal and pray to Allah for it, you will definitely succeed in your goal. I dared to do something for the team, it was difficult but my goal Did not leave and I succeeded.
“It is an honor for me to score a century for Pakistan in T20 and to be the second Pakistani batsman, but I am also happy to be the first Pakistani wicketkeeper-batsman in the world to score a century in all three formats,” he said. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either.
The wicket-keeper said that I never thought of 100 during the innings, I just thought that Pakistan’s score would be bigger, I was caught at 96 and 98 but I did not think that it would be double. And to score a century, because the runs were low, I needed fours and sixes at that time, what should I have done with my 100 if Pakistan’s runs were not more, the century is now fun that Pakistan team won the match, If I had 98 or 99 runs, I wouldn’t care.
Mohammad Rizwan said that it is easy to say that the pitch was helping the batsmen, it was not like that. In the beginning I was gripping the ball. If I had not stopped and played and lost the wicket, it would have been very difficult. He is not found.
“Our seniors and legends have taught us to go and try to understand the pitch first and then see what the pitch demands and then try to play our innings accordingly,” he said.
The national wicket-keeper said that if our world class batsmen and captain Babar Azam got out early then you had to take the innings longer while playing according to the plan so the strike was kept short at the beginning of the innings so that I would not lose my wicket. Lost, initially the strike rate was low but later the reduction was completed.
Mohammad Rizwan said that the conditions are definitely difficult but it is not just for us, bowling is our strength and the bowlers have shown today that they can defend.
