T20 World Cup: ‘Great ’ Rizwan wins hearts in Pakistan

Pakistan batter Mohammad Rizwan remained the top scorer with 67 runs in Thursday’s T20 World Cup semi-final against Australia. A day before the match, he was hospitalised for two days and remained in the intensive care unit due to a chest infection, the team doctor said.

On November 10, media reports surfaced about doubts over Rizwan and Shoaib Malik’s participation in the semi-final due to fever.

Pakistan’s 16-match winning streak came to an end when they suffered a five-wicket defeat against Australia at Dubai International Stadium. Cricket lovers in Pakistan acknowledged the Green Shirts’ fighting spirit but Rizwan won hearts for his amazing innings despite being ill.

The star cricketer hit seven boundaries in his 52-ball knock that settled a 177 target for Australia.

Musician and Singer Ali Zafar posted Rizwan’s picture from the hospital bed on Twitter and wrote: “What heroes are made of. Rizwan”
