Mohammad Rizwan’s achievements are worth discussing. Not only in the sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 6) but beyond the boundaries too. From heavily being under criticism once to being a superhero of the realm, Rizwan has been presenting some flawless moments for the cricket devotees to watch for.
Sultans’ decision to make him the skipper of Multan Sultans is now justified as the 29-year-old has dragged his team to the final for the first time in HBL PSL history. The blue-green men were induced in the franchise crew in 2018 and have been struggling to enter the final. They reached the playoffs last season under Shan Masood but were not lucky enough to chase the race to the grand finale.
Mohammad Rizwan’s road to immense success
Not only personal accomplishments but Rizwan’s individual record in every prospect is worth lauds of praises. His place in the national team has been debatable as in competition with Sarfaraz Ahmed. Both, Rizwan and Sarfaraz, being the mid-order wicketkeeping batters, have shared delightful moments on and off-field but are considered to be in combat when it comes to owning the place in the squad.
When Sarfaraz’s road to the team became doubtful after fitness lack and mediocre showcases in some agendas, his place was questionable and replaceable as a skipper. Although with his return to the team after inspiring performances in domestic, it became a matter of debate that who will be the leading wicketkeeper of Pakistan.
Now, both of them are placed in the national team getting chances in the playing XI at once for either role. But, Rizwan has turned the past criticism into praises with his magnificently behind the stumps and with the bat. He is now one of the three Pakistani batsmen and the second wicketkeeper in the world to have a century in all three formats of cricket. His appealing performances may have seized the board to proceed with him in all three formats deliberately.
His leadership role was a matter of query too but at last, Rizwan has shut all up with his individual and captaincy performances clearing Sultans’ road to the grand finale primarily in 4 years. Maybe the Tareens were too inspired by his past captaincy sights in domestic as he was coming from a National T20 Cup win for KPK lately alongside different triumphs for Peshawar region.
Nobody knew overtaking Masood may bring fortunes for Multan Sultans in the HBL PSL 6. As of now, the cricketing sensation is optimistic about winning the maiden PSL trophy for his team. Sultans are programmed to rival the final on 24th June with any of the three teams grappling to qualify.
