Pak Vs Eng: Mohammad Rizwan Broke Virat Kohli T20I Record

Pak Vs Eng: Mohammad Rizwan Broke Virat Kohli, And Equals Babar Azam’s World Record In T20I

Pakistan were defeated comprehensively in the T20I series opener against England in Karachi as their middle-order batting collapse completely following by Asia Cup campaign. Although the Men in Green will be dejected after the loss, Mohammad Rizwan’s prolific run with the bat would have pleased the team and fans. The wicketkeeper-batter registered a brisk half-century and reached the milestone of 2000 runs in T20Is for Pakistan.

Rizwan scored 68 off 46, his 16th T20I fifty as Pakistan registered 158 on the scoreboard batting first. England were able to chase the total in the last over with four balls and six wickets to spare.

Both Rizwan (375) and Babar (165) have been the highest run scorers for Pakistan this year in T20Is, even though the latter’s form has been in question since the Asia Cup where he was only able to score 68 runs in six innings.
