Shoaib Akhtar praises 'limited' Mohammad Rizwan
Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar is in awe of vice-captain Mohammad Rizwan as the latter smashed a match-saving ton at the National Stadium, Karachi.
The 29-year-old scored a fighting 104 not out off 177 balls against Australia on day five of the Karachi Test, which ended in a draw.
The Rawalpindi Express in a video on his YouTube channel praised the Multan Sultan captain stating that people will remember the wicketkeeper for years to come.
"Rizwan plays like there is no pressure on him,” he said. “He [Rizwan] has been doing wonders for the last few years and he has emerged as a core member of the side."
"Late Shane Warne used to say to me, it is not about how many wickets you have taken, it is the way you played the game, people will remember you for how you played the game,” he said.
According to him if Rizwan continues to play like this people will remember for years to come. “He [Rizwan] is very limited but it is all about intention. Almighty Allah is bestowing him with all the respect he deserves," he added.
