Mohammad Rizwan is one of the fastest rising stars in world cricket. The wicketkeeper-batter has left his mark in international cricket in the last couple of years. During Indian cricket team’s match against Pakistan cricket team at the 2021 T20 World Cup, Rizwan top-scored with an unbeaten 79 to take his team to a 10-wicket win.

Obviously, when we enter the ground, our priority is our star (points at the Pakistan cricket team’s emblem). We have to play for it. There we have no brotherhood or anything of that sort. But outside the field, when we met Kohli, and some of our players also met MS Dhoni, we met with a lot of love and affection. Nothing was different,” Rizwan said on the YouTube show Cricket Baaz with Waheed Khan.
“Cheteshwar Pujara played with me in County. We have a good bond. I sometime irritate him
