New Delhi: Mohammad Rizwan has done wonders as soon as he came to Indian soil. This wicketkeeper batsman of Pakistan scored a brilliant century in the World Cup warm up match. Against New Zealand, Rizwan completed his century in 92 balls. Let us tell you that Rizwan has come to India for the first time and as soon as he came, he has scored a century which is special for him. Rizwan’s form was going very bad. He could not do anything special in the Asia Cup. In such a situation, scoring a century with his bat before the start of World Cup 2023 is a news of relief for him and the Pakistani team.
When Rizwan stepped on the crease, Pakistan was in trouble. Imad Wasim and Abdullah Shafiq were disposed of cheaply. But after this, Rizwan took over the innings with captain Babar Azam and gave a befitting reply to New Zealand by making a partnership of 114 runs for the third wicket. As usual, Rizwan took time to settle down first and then faced the Kiwi spinners with the help of his sweep shots.
Let us tell you that Babar and Rizwan added the first fifty runs of the partnership in just 59 balls and their partnership touched the 100 mark in 97 balls. By the way, Babar also played amazing strokes in this partnership. Babar played an excellent inning of 80 runs. Babar missed out on scoring a century but Rizwan scored a hundred. Rizwan retired hurt after scoring a century. Let us tell you that in the warm-up match, Rizwan declared himself retired to give a chance to other batsmen.
Rizwan and Babar have scored runs as usual but Pakistan’s biggest tension still remains. Actually, Pakistani opening has not been going on for a long time. Fakhar Zaman was also failing continuously, so Abdullah Shafiq was tried but he also flopped in the warm-up match. Imam ul Haq was also seen succumbing to quality bowling as usual. If the situation continues like this then there will be more pressure on both Babar and Rizwan during the World Cup, which is not good news for Pakistan.
