Pakistan's Mohammad Rizwan had spent 2 days in the ICU right before the semi-final bout against Australia in the T20 World Cup last night.
Despite being ill, Rizwan battled hard and top-scored with a superb 67 off 52 balls while opening the batting. This has led to people hailing him as a true warrior.
Spent 2 nights in the ICU before the match, didn't let it affect his performance today, got a severe bruise on the face after getting hit by that severe bouncer still kept wickets for all the overs, Rizwan is not less than a warrior who gave it all for Pakistan today#Pakistan pic.twitter.com/aGaEQXl6Of— Weirdo (@lone_struggler) November 11, 2021
This is unreal. No wonder Matthew Hayden called him a warrior. Huge respect for Mohammad Rizwan who spent two nights before the #T20WorldCup semi-final in ICU - then top-scored with 67! https://t.co/YLfJOGFmUO pic.twitter.com/2ztPUsuuWF— cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) November 11, 2021
For me, Rizwan defined the spirit of Pakistan Cricket.— Umar Saif (@umarsaif) November 11, 2021
He was in ICU for 2 days but played today; hit on the face with a bouncer but went on to be the top scorer; kept the wickets with a vicious bruise on the face.
