Mohammad Rizwan, the wicketkeeper-batsman for Pakistan, has stated that he is not concerned about his “personal milestones” and that they don’t worry him.

Before the third One-Day International against New Zealand on May 3, Rizwan said in a press conference: “For me, personal milestones don’t matter. The captain’s strategy, which we must follow, is important. The only thing that counts to us is doing as our commander asks of us. We respect the opinions of all parties.

After Pakistan’s defeat to New Zealand in the last T20I on April 24 in Rawalpindi, the wicketkeeper-batter faced intense backlash.

Pakistan reached 193-5 in 20 overs thanks to 98 not out from Rizwan. However, Rizwan’s supporters and fans noticed a slowdown as he approached his second T20I century. Only 28 runs could be scored by Pakistan in the final three overs.

Imad Wasim attempted to take a single in the final over of the innings to give Rizwan, who was batting on 98, a strike so he could reach his hundred-run milestone.


This way of thinking annoyed the game’s supporters and followers.


In addressing this issue during the press conference, Rizwan stated that the team’s dressing room had communicated that a score of around 180 would be sufficient to win the game.

“We overcame a spell in which we were 50-3. We were told by the dressing room that a weight of roughly 180 would be suitable for this field. Therefore, we decided to score runs accordingly,” he said.


No discussion of picking a single took place. Imad decided it was good enough on this pitch when we were close to 190, which is why he tried for a single there, he recalled.


On the fourth delivery in the last over, Imad attempted to take a single but was unfortunate run out. Rizwan ultimately was unable to finish his century.

“Nobody would have blamed us if we had won. But we acknowledge that we made a mistake, and the criticism is valid,” he insisted.


We continued to be unfortunate since we frequently misfielded the ball and there was a due element. We lost, which is why we are dealing with a lot of inquiries, he continued.


“I don’t concentrate on my own accomplishments. I’m certain Fakhar Zaman wasn’t contemplating his 3,000 runs either. At the press conference, he clarified, “Perhaps he had something about this on the back of his mind, but I’m not sure.
