    I havent seen a more unbalanced player than him. He falls when playing shots. Has no power at all. No shots.
    Hes got the most basic thing wrong: balance. If he can play for Pakistan then anyone can.

    If a player like him is given a chance, one that can't hold his balance at the crease, why not give Fawad Alam a bloody chance?

    They won't pick him in ODI, they won't pick him in Tests so why not try T20s.

    Rizwan is average and shows the lack of depth we have when he was supposedly the best finisher we had/have.

    Firstly salute to Inzi, whatta find he has propped up for last one year.

    What an embarassment this Rizwan is. Can't even clear the circle. And he is playing T20

    There are players like Gohar Ali and even Rohail Nazir who can time and keep well. Shame on the selectors for pushing this joke into national team when there is a huge swath of keeper/batsmen in domestic circuit. Still everybody is silent and not commenting on selector bias.

    That's probably the end of M Rizwan.

    He only has a future in the test format otherwise too limited for OD formats.

    FGS there must be someone other than this clown to put pressure on Sarfaraz...... This guy a double whammy for Pakistan cricket as he doesn't perform when selected thus releasing the pressure on Sarfaraz to perform either. Any other decent wicket keeper-batsman would have either dethroned Sarfaraz or at least put some real pressure on him to perform at his very best.

    I don't think there is much threat to Safaraz position due to Rizwans poor performances. That 10 off 30 in the ODI was really poor especially.

    We can't really blame Inzi for this, Rizwan was batting like a GOAT in domestic, it's only fair he got a recall as one would think he had improved massively, shame the investment turned out to be a bad one. I guess Sarfaraz being banned has in some way benefited him, he was under a lot of pressure as his batting was bad and it seemed like Rizwan deserved his spot but we've seen how mediocre Rizwan still is internationally.

    Looked really poor yesterday, played 2 good shots against the spinner but overall he was awful. Its a shame as we need competition for Safraz.

    Best think that has happened since sarfraz ban is people who been calling for Rizwan as if he is some kind of savior for Pakistan have got a reality check. Which i said even before there something called technique doesnt matter how many runs you score at domestic in international cricket good technique is required.

    Thats why selectors look for technique too along with runs before giving anybody a chance in internationals.

    Most of the poster here think they can judge someone by 2 innings completing ignoring 121 List A matches and 77 first class matches Rizwan has played. Some one like him should be given extended run in place of Sarfraz as it will not be very often you will get keeper who can average 50 in list A with strke rate of 88. Idiotic to say that you can judge some one by one ODI match or one T20 match.

    If you are in favour of choosing some one who has worse records than Rizwan then ask your self how come that players could not score runs in first class and List A.

    These are the same people who have their hands soaked in injutice inflicted on Fawad Alam.

    If you are going to judge some one by one or two matches then perhaps judge Sarfraz by the Golden Ducks he scored in the first test match.

    Rizwan might very well be a fine batsman, but one thing he clearly is not is a hitter. So I would suggest if he has a role it should be in longer formats like 50 overs or test matches. In T20s he has no place whatsoever, he can barely get the ball off the square. I've seen him in his first stint in a Pakistan shirt and he looks a busy player who is more of an accumulator, so doesn't mean he's a bad batsman, just not enough overs in a 20 over game to play yourself in.

    Tbh I didn't see either of his innings as I wasn't watching the matches at the times he batted but I get the impression that he isn't being hated by getting low scores, but the fact he looked like a tail ender while he was batting. If someone gets out cheaply just two times, then yes you deserve to stick with them but based on what others are saying, he was looking like someone playing cricket for the first time which is the more worrying thing! He had a great chance here with Sarfaraz being banned, would have been interesting had he played a match winning knock in the decider against SA but him flopping has taken a lot of pressure off Sarfaraz as Rizwan was the one threatening to take his place.

    I agree with you on this. He should be in ODIs and Test matches

    Forget about these posters. They have most likely not even lift the bat in this match.

    They are calling Rizwan, who has played over 200 first class and list A matches , as some one playing first cricket match. I pity their intelligence

    Well I was a fan of Rizwan but the way he batted was poor. Especially in the match where he came to bat in 25th over, he couldn't even accumulate. The worst thing was he looks worse than when he intially came into the side and his habit of running down the track is awful. Bitterly disappointed with Rizwan because he looked so good in last year's psl.

    I'd haste caution in this aspect as we already have someone with good technique. And aside from his good technique, is only famous for scoring runs in a losing cause or saving his spot just in the nick of time and book in for the next series. In other words, this good technique guy is impactless.

    He has not looked good, but if Pakistan could tolerate Sarfraz with similar performances for over 12 months, why show zero patience for Rizwan?

    I would like to see him work with Mickey for a few months. He is not going to turn him into Buttler or Bairstow, but it will be interesting to see if he can help him translate some of his Pakistan A form - where he scored heavily against some decent bowling - into international cricket.

    Anyway, his career is not over yet. When Malik (most definitely) and Hafeez (most probably) retire from ODIs after the World Cup, he will be among the leading candidates to replace them in the middle-order.

    Still if you have a technique you have a chance but with no technique in International cricket you have quicker and taller fast bowlers.
