Mohammad Rizwan was admitted in the ICU a day before the semi-final !

Pakistan might have lost the semi-finals against Australia last night, thus being eliminated from the T20 World Cup 2021, but when it comes to individual performance, Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan has won the hearts of every spectator. He gave a stellar performance in last night’s crucial match and went on to score as much as 67 off 52, giving stability to Pakistan’s innings. Unfortunately, his performance went in vain as the Pakistani bowlers weren’t able to defend the runs and conceded way too many runs. However, after listening to the back-story of the Pakistani opener, our respect for him has increased ten folds.

You will probably know that Mohammad Rizwan and Shoaib Malik were in doubt of playing the match against Pakistan after being affected by a flu. But later they were given the green signal. In reality, the condition of Mohammad Rizwan was much more critical than just that. So what had happened?

Well, Mohammad Rizwan had spent two nights in the ICU after developing a severe chest infection. It was only during the match that the news was made public and it went viral in no time. Not only did he play in the semi-finals with that pain, he also got hit on his helmet and got a severe bruise but still managed to play a sensational knock. A warrior’s spirit by Mohammad Rizwan right there !

Shoaib Malik was one of the first Pakistani stars to break the news to the world and share a pic of Rizwan in the ICU. “Can you imagine this guy played for his country today & gave his best. He was in the hospital last two days. Massive respect @iMRizwanPak . Hero.”
