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.

Rizwan wasn’t just sick, he was admitted in the ICU. The team management decided to not disclose the information outside. They didn’t want to create panic and disrupt team’s morale.
