Mohammad Rizwan has finally opened up on his batting position in ODI cricket, saying he feels more comfortable in the top-order positions.
In a press conference, Rizwan mentioned that he prefers to bat at number four in the 50-over format instead of number five but would follow what the captain and coach want.
The Peshawar-born cricketer further claimed that he had not complained in the past about his batting position and would not do so in the future for the benefit of the country.
“I have been sacrificing for the last 15 or 16 years and still not complaining. We are prepared to follow the captain’s and coach’s instructions, Rizwan said.
Regarding the upcoming season, Rizwan said that every game is important for the team and that in order for the team to advance, they must put the past behind them and concentrate on the present.
The 30-year-old batter acknowledged that Rawalpindi’s weather is different from that of Karachi, but promised that they would make every effort to adjust quickly and win the remaining matches.
In the second game, the right-hander was essential to the team’s efforts to chase down a record-breaking total. A valiant 54* runs were scored by him off of 41 balls, including six boundaries.
It is important to note that the third ODI of the Men in Green’s five-match series against New Zealand will take place today at Karachi’s National Bank Cricket Arena.
