Fans, cricketers pay tribute to Rizwan’s courage


KARACHI: Pakistan’s wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan spent two nights in the ICU before scoring 67 off 52 balls against Australia in the second T20 World Cup 2021’s semi-final. 

Pakistan team’s medical representative confirmed it while talking to the media after Pakistan lost to Australia by five wickets.

“Rizwan suffered a severe chest infection and was admitted to hospital for treatment. He spent two nights in the ICU before playing today’s match,” the medical representative shared.

Soon after the statement, a picture of Rizwan from the ICU went viral on social media. The picture managed to gain massive attention and people paid tribute to the cricketer for showing great courage.

It must be noted here that Rizwan got swelling in his right cheek after being hit by Mitchell Starc’s bouncer during his fighting knock.
