Rizwan out Zimbabwe

Watch: Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan succumbed inside the powerplay for the second time in the 2022 T20 World Cup, losing his off stump to Zimbabwe’s Blessing Muzarabani after playing on, in their Group 2 game in Perth.

Rizwan, who has the second-most men’s T20I runs this year [behind Suryakumar Yadav] was Pakistan’s second wicket to fall in Perth, after Babar Azam was sent back by Brad Evans in the previous over. Rizwan’s dismissal left Pakistan at 23-2, their target being 131.

Off the fourth ball of the fifth over, bowled by Muzarabani, Rizwan tried to guide through to backward point, but only managed to get a thick inside edge. The ball was probably too close to his body to play the stroke, and it ended up cutting in and crashing into his off stump.


Three overs later, it was Iftikhar Ahmed walking back, snared by Luke Jongwe in his very first over.
