    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.

    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.

    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.

    It's really not. Shinwari is terrible in his own right but he's nowhere near as useless as Rizwan. Shinwari in 12 ODIs has a ridiculous average of 17 with an economy rate under 5. He also has 2 4fers and 1 5fer to his name.

    Shinwari is proof that stats aren't everything but still even in his short career, he has shown glimpses of talent and won a few matches for Pakistan. Stark contrast to Rizwan who genuinely makes you wonder how he has made a living out of playing cricket.

    Rizwan stands alone as the most useless cricketer currently involved in our first team. He actually has a case for being the most useless international cricketer going around. He is the Kohli of useless cricketers.

    Agreed, rizwan is the guy we need in the middle order at no 4.

    I believe on previous occasions he was short on form and confidence, but if we can this guy confidence, then there is no one better than him at the moment for the no 4 spot in the odis.

    He will score 100 here on a flat deck, his real announcement would be if he can kick on and score a 150 odd score.

    Don't think Mickey is stupid though. He will not be making the first XI. However, it is good to see our back up keeper is getting some confidence if the misfortune of Sarfraz picking up an injury is to happen.

    That's why it's a pity U. Akmal and Shan masood couldn't get on.

    The only 2 guys in this side that can ba at SR of 120 or above when needed.

    It will get Rizwan in the ODI squad, But NO way that he is replacing Hafeez in the eleven.

    Hafeez is still 10x better than Rizwan. He at the least is a stroke maker and can smash the opposition on good belters.

    Malik is decent too. Both should be on the plane but I agree that only one, ideally Hafeez, should make the XI.

    A lot depends on Umar Akmal though. He's the only other lower-order batsman than can dislodge Malik from the team. It is either that or batting Sarfaraz at #6 and Shadab or Imad at #7, which would severely weaken out batting.

    Hafeez batting at #5 and bowling 7-10, economical overs an innings would be fantastic for the team balance. Haris can be the sixth bowling option.

    A guys scores 115 off 126 and just because he isnt beloved of most here, some people are saying disastrous thing for Pak cricket.

    Without realizing how important his innings were when at 1 stage we were 112/4.

    Just PP things I guess.

    Poor batsman.

    A bad accumulator.

    We have better options for accumulators at 4.

    Even today he wasn't convincing and sucked out the momentum, on a pure batting track. Has played 30 ODIs already.

    This 100 may cost us.

    For someone who plays that many deliveries on a belter and still not end up at 100+ strike rate isn't something to boast about.

    But, it was still good, if it was done by a proper batsman with a history of making good scores.

    Riz isn't that person and has a history of failures, poor technique, not a timer, nor can accelerate.

    He has some technical problems but is a clutch player.

    His team has won few domestic tournaments and several matches due to his clutch batting.

    Main test will be against express pace where his balance might come into question.

    Some pathetic comments. Yes he didn’t do well in the last 10 overs but today he’s proved himself to be the superior bat over Sarfraz.

    His knock was crucial when pak were 112/4 and facing yet another batting collapse.

    Agreed especially in his last 20, 30 runs. However, considering it was his first such milestone it was natural to be a bit nervous.

    Another one dimensional batsman. Australia happily let him get to his 100 because they knew they already have the match in the bag. This was a 350+ pitch and Pak only scored 280.

    I simply don't get why Pakistan didn't just opt to go to six hitters for this ODI series. If we weren't going to play the starters then might aswell given guys like Asif Ali license to kill and show their hitting abilities. I would liked to see a batting line up made up of all the best stroke makers in Pakistan and see what they can do without any pressure. All these accumulators don't belong in the modern game.

    It is not that I rate him in particular - I feel that he deserves more opportunities to prove himself. He was rightfully thrown out after a couple of torrid series against Australia and England, but considering his form for the A team against some pretty solid bowling and Sarfaraz's pathetic performances, he deserves another chance and I am glad that he has utilised the opportunity.

    His power-hitting is not good enough for 6-7, but I think he can be a decent number 4 or 5. I will gladly take him over Sarfaraz. Based on these innings, he is likely to get an extended run at four especially after the World Cup when Hafeez and Malik retire from ODIs.
