Desk: Pakistan cricket team has made a great start to its One Day World Cup campaign. It defeated Netherlands in the match played in Hyderabad on Friday. Netherlands gave competition to Pakistan but this team under the captaincy of Babar Azam was successful in winning. Wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan played for Pakistan in this match. He played a half-century innings, but apart from his batting, Rizwan has come into discussion for some other reason also.
During the match, he did something on the field that everyone kept watching. Pakistan had scored 286 runs while batting first in this match, in which Rizwan’s innings of 68 runs played with the help of eight fours in 75 balls had an important role. Apart from him, Shaud Shakeel also played an inning of 68 runs. Netherlands team collapsed for 205 runs.
Namaz offered on the beach
In this match, when the drinks break took place, the entire Pakistani team was busy drinking water but Rizwan took off his wicket-keeping gloves, shoes and pads and started offering namaz. This video of his is currently going viral on social media. However, this is not the first time that Rizwan has offered namaz on the beach. Rizwan had done the same in the match against India in the T20 World Cup played in the year 2021. Because of this he had come into the news earlier also.
took over the team
In this match, Netherlands captain Scott Edwards won the toss and decided to bowl first. Netherlands had weakened Pakistani batting. The team’s veteran batsmen had returned to the pavilion. The opening pair of Imam ul Haq and Fakhar Zaman could not survive and neither did Babar Azam’s bat. The team had lost the wickets of these three for 38 runs. There was a crisis in the team and after this Rizwan took charge. He along with Shakeel made a comeback for Pakistan by making a partnership of 120 runs.
