Mohammad Rizwan Facts

  1. He had first come into the spotlight when he had scored a mammoth knock of 224 runs in the final of the 2014–15 season of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy (the premier domestic first-class competition in Pakistan). His effort had helped Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) amass a 301-run first-innings lead and eventually lift the title, for just the 2nd time ever.
  2. In October 2019, he had scored 215 runs in the 2019–20 season of the National T20 Cup (the premier domestic T20 competition in Pakistan). He had also taken 6 wickets in the competition in a rare show of his bowling skills. His all-around performance had won him the ‘Player of the Tournament’ award.
  3. In his debut test match innings, against New Zealand in November 2016, he was out for a golden duck (dismissed without scoring, off the very first ball that he had faced).
  4. In February 2021, he had scored his first centuries in both the test match format as well as the T20I format. Having already scored an ODI hundred earlier in his career, he had achieved the rare distinction of having scored a hundred in all 3 formats (Tests, ODIs, and T20Is) of international cricket.
  5. He had also become the first Pakistani wicketkeeper-batsman to have scored a century in T20I cricket and just the 2nd wicketkeeper-batsman ever, after Brendon McCullum, to have scored centuries in all 3 formats of international cricket.
  6. He was just the 2nd Pakistani batsman to have scored a century in the T20I format, after Ahmed Shehzad, and also just the 5th designated wicketkeeper-batsman to have recorded a T20I century.
  7. Before ICC T20 World Cup Semi-Final in November 2021, Rizwan had spent 2 nights in hospital in an ICU due to a severe chest infection. Sadly, Pakistan lost that match to Australia. He played the match and scored 67 off 52 deliveries.
