After spearheading his domestic side SNGPL to Quaid-e-Azam Trophy glory in consecutive seasons- 2014/15 & 2015-16- Mohammad Rizwan earned

his maiden Test call-up for Pakistan's tour of New Zealand in the winter of 2016. He played his maiden Test in Hamilton, where he managed just 13 runs in 1 innings.


Sarfaraz's axing in 2019 brought him back in the Test set-up, and during the course of the next overseas cycle, the Peshawar stumper proceeded to establish himself as one of the mainstays of the Pakistan batting line-up.


He struck a brilliant 95 at the Gabba in his first Test post his comeback, and what followed over the course of the next 12 months truly elevated his status in the longest format of the game.


He averaged 44.25 (177 runs in 2 matches), 40.25 (161 runs in 3 matches), 43.00 (215 runs in 3 matches) in Australia, England and New Zealand respectively during the 2019-20/21 overseas cycle.


Since the start of 2020, Rizwan is the one of the three Pakistani batters to rack up 1000+ runs. His maiden hundred- 115* off 204- came against South Africa in Rawalpindi in 2021. He backed it up with a match-saving unbeaten 104 against Australia in Karachi in March 2022.


Mohammad Rizwan ODIs:


345402.jpg (1200×800)


Rizwan made his ODI debut against Bangladesh in April 2015, and gave a decent account of himself with a 58-ball 67 in his maiden innings. A good start against the likes of Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe was eventually followed by an extended lean patch, which saw him lose the wicketkeeper slot to Sarfaraz Ahmed.


In his first 25 ODIs, Rizwan managed just 460 runs at 28.75 apiece, and he was eventually dropped from the set-up following a disastrous series in Australia in 2017, where he managed just 51 runs in 4 innings at 17 apiece.


He racked up 2 100s against Australia in the UAE ahead of the 2019 World Cup, but it was not enough for him to earn a place in the World Cup squad.


With Sarfaraz Ahmed dumped and ousted from the side following Pakistan's premature exit from the World Cup, Rizwan made his way back into the ODI set-up as first-choice keeper, but he is yet to turn his fortunes around in this format.


As of October 2022, Rizwan has 1065 runs against his name after 49 ODIs at an average of 29.58, with just 2 100+ scores.


Mohammad Rizwan T20Is

Mohammad Rizwan made his T20I debut against Bangladesh in April 2015, but it was only after the axing of keeper-batter Sarfaraz Ahmed in September 2019, that he finally managed to claim a permanent position in the T20I set-up.


His peak as a T20I batter started in 2021 when he smashed his maiden 50+ score- against New Zealand in Napier- and then his maiden hundred in his very next innings against South Africa in Lahore.


Since the start of 2021, no one has scored more T20I runs than Rizwan's 2147 (in 44 innings @ 65.06/131.47). In 2021, he became the first batter in T20I history to rack up as many as 1326 runs (in 26 innings @ 73.66/134.89) and more than 2000 (2036) in overall T20s.


He finished as Pakistan's 2nd leading scorer in the T20 World Cup 2021 and the highest scorer in Asia Cup 2022- 281 runs @ 56.20/117.57- although his sedate approach in the powerplay attracted him a lot of criticism.


After the Asia Cup, Pakistan hosted England for a 7-match T20I series, and in the 2nd game, Rizwan and Babar scripted history as the duo gunned down England's total of 199 to become the most prolific pair in the international T20s.


Rizwan and Babar have batted 45 times in T20Is, and have racked up 2313 runs with 8 100+ run partnerships; the next best are India's Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, with 1809 runs in 36 innings.


In September 2022, Rizwan dethroned Babar Azam to become the ICC's No.1 ranked T20I batter, with his career rating points peaking at 875.


Mohammad Rizwan PSL Career:


Mohammad Rizwan has represented Lahore Qalandars (2016-17), Karachi Kings (2018-19) and Multan Sultans (2020- present) in his 6-year-old PSL career so far.


Apart from being a prolific scorer at the top of the order, Rizwan has also tasted success as captain when he led Multans Sultans to title glory during the 6th season. He spearheaded his side with the bat, scoring 500 runs in 391 deliveries @ 45.45/127.87.


Rizwan was adjudged the 'Player of the tournament' for his exploits with the bat and behind the stumps in the 7th edition held in March 2022. With 546 runs in 12 innings @ 68.25/126.68, Rizwan finished as the second-highest run-scorer.
