Mohammad Rizwan: Pakistan is hosting England for a seven-match T20I series. It is a historic moment for both teams, as England are touring Pakistan for a bilateral series for the first time since 2005. It means both teams are playing a bilateral series in Pakistan after a long gap of 17 years. However, the Babar-led team suffered a six-wicket loss in the first T20 match on Sunday. The Men in Green, who went to the final of the Asia Cup, faced defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka by 23 runs. Seeking official betting sites in India?

The underperforming middle-order was the prime reason for their Asia Cup loss. That’s what happened in the first T20I against England as well. However, after the Asia Cup loss, there was a lot of criticism of the slow batting approach of Babar and Mohammad Rizwan. The skipper had a horrible tournament. Rizwan ended as the highest run-scorer, but the strike rate of 117.57 raised many questions.

“Main Sarfaraz ko kabhi aane nahi dunga” – Mohammad Rizwan

“He Said, ‘Main Sarfaraz Ko Kabhi Aane Nahi Dunga”- Ex-Pak Cricketer Makes a Shocking Revelation on Mohammad Rizwan

The wicket-keeper batsman also played well in the first T20I. He scored 68 runs off 46 balls with six fours and two sixes at 147.83. However, the consistency of Rizwan has totally sidelined the availability of former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed. There was speculation that Pakistan would pick Sarfaraz in the T20 WC squad after his good performance on the domestic circuit. But it didn’t happen and Pakistan preferred young wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Harris as the reserve.

And now the former Pakistan cricketer has made a shocking revelation about Sarfaraz and Rizwan. In a discussion on national television Geo Super, Sikander Bakht made a bold claim on the career of Sarfaraz and said that Rizwan didn’t want him to be in the team anymore. Bakht said,

“Sarfaraz will not play now. Our cricket community is quite small, so we get to know a lot of things. A cricketer who does programmes with us told us that Rizwan said, “main Sarfaraz ko kabhi aane nahi dunga (I won’t let Sarfaraz return to Pakistan team). That’s because when Sarfaraz was there, he didn’t let Rizwan play. So now it’s the opposite. This is what I have heard. I might be wrong.”

Notably, Rizwan made his debut in April 2015 against Bangladesh in an ODI. But he couldn’t make his way into the team as Sarfaraz was already there. However, after the 2019 ODI World Cup, Rizwan cemented his place. Find the Cricket Predictions and updates for the upcoming matches around the globe.
