Pakistan Cricket Team’s star wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan has said such a thing about Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara, for which he is being praised a lot. Rizwan believes that when there is a clash between the players of two countries on the cricket field, it is limited to the field only, off the field all the cricketers are like a family. Rizwan and Pujara are playing together for county team Sussex. Rizwan also praised Pujara during this, while a photo of him with Virat Kohli during the match against India in the T20 World Cup 2021 became very viral.
Rizwan said in an interview to Cricwick, ‘The whole cricketing world is like a family to us. When there is a clash between the players of two countries, it is confined to the field, outside it we are all from the same family. If I say our Virat Kohli, then there is nothing wrong in it. He further said, ‘Or I say our Cheteshwar Pujara, our Steve Smith or our Joe Root, then there is nothing wrong in that too. Because we all belong to the same family.
Talking about Rizwan, he has played 22 Tests, 44 ODIs and 56 T20 Internationals for Pakistan so far. Rizwan has 1112, 897 and 1662 runs in all three formats respectively. Rizwan has played many match-winning innings for Pakistan along with Babar Azam. He said during this interview that when he got out for short runs in the county team, he went to Pujara to ask for advice. He praised Pujara’s patience. Pujara is in excellent form in county cricket these days.
