In fact, Mohammad Rizwan scripted history as he became the first player to score over 2000 runs in T20s and 1000 runs in T20Is this year. He finished the year with a bang as he won the player of the match against the West Indies.

Impressed with the performances of both the cricketers, former Pakistani cricketer Rashid Latif took a dig at Indian players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma while hailing the amazing performances of Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan.

Well, speaking after the conclusion of the third T20I between Pakistan and West Indies, where Rizwan and Babar once again played a match-winning opening partnership of 158 runs, Rashid feels that both the cricketers have turned the tables for Team India. He said:

“About a year ago, we used to say that Pakistan doesn’t have players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma or KL Rahul especially in T20 cricket. But I think, after some time, Indians will also say that we don’t have players like [Mohammad] Rizwan and Babar [Azam],” said Latif on PTV Sports.

Rashid Latif also praised Azam and Rizwan’s ability to improve their strike rate.  He said:

“Earlier, we also had our reservations about their scoring rate but they made up for it by pacing their innings perfectly,” 

He also came up with a hilarious reply when asked about the performances of Pakistan’s opening pair. He said:

Scoring six century partnerships is no joke…I think they are from a different planet,”
