Mohammad Rizwan continued his impressive form in the World Cup 2023 with a 49-run knock against India in Match No.12 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The right-handed batter has been in scintillating form in the mega event and is currently the leading run-scorer of the tournament.
Mohammad Rizwan started the World Cup with a half-century against the Netherlands and then followed it up with an unbeaten 131 as Pakistan chased down a target of 345 with 10 balls to spare against New Zealand. Rizwan came to bat at No.4 against India after the dismissal of Imam-ul-Haq and got a lifeline early in the innings when an LBW decision was overturned in his favor.
The Pakistan batter then went on to put on a partnership of 81 runs with Babar Azam, who scored a fifty before being dismissed by Mohammed Siraj. Despite losing his skipper at the other end, Rizwan continued to bat positively and was on course for a half-century before he was dismissed by Jasprit Bumrah. However, his 49-run knock was enough to help Pakistan post a respectable total of 266 on the board.
Mohammad Rizwan has been in sublime form in the World Cup 2023 so far, and his 49-run knock against India was his third half-century in the tournament. He is currently the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 238 runs at an average of 79.33 and a strike rate of 100.85.
Rizwan’s form has been one of the key factors behind Pakistan’s success in the World Cup so far. The team has won all three of their matches in the tournament, and they will be hoping that Rizwan can continue his good form in the upcoming matches as well.
