Pakistan v South Africa

Watch: Super Rizwan flies again to affect diving run out

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Watch: A diving Mohammad Rizwan affected a stunning run out to dismiss Reeza Hendricks in the first T20I Pakistan-South Africa in Lahore on Thursday.

Rizwan produced the dismissal soon after becoming the only the second Pakistan batsman to notch up a hundred in T20I cricket, after Ahmed Shahzad.

This is not the first time Rizwan has affected a diving run out. The last time he did it, it was compared to the Jonty Rhodes run out from the 1992 ODI World Cup. This time, Rizwan showed that the first time was not a one-off effort.

An inside edge from Hendricks landed ahead of Rizwan, who then rushed forward and put in a full-length dive to take the stumps out even as the batsman struggled to get back in.
