Mohammad Rizwan will lead Multan Sultan
Shaheen Afridi will be in command of Lahore Qalandars

New Delhi. In Pakistan Super League (PSL 2023), star batsman Mohammad Rizwan will captain Multan Sultans. On the night of February 13, his team will face Shaheen Afridi-led Lahore Qalandars. Before this match, an interview of Mohammad Rizwan is in discussion. In this, the wicket-keeper batsman has given his point on replacing Sarfaraz Ahmed in the team in his place in the Test series against New Zealand.

Mohammad Rizwan said, you can ask head coach Saqlain Mushtaq what I told him after the end of the England Test series. I believed that I did not deserve to play for Pakistan at that time. In an interview given to Cricket Pakistan, Rizwan said, some players told me that everyone goes through this phase. You cannot sit on the bench without some failures. Despite this I myself went to the coach and captain and told them that you can drop me. I am not able to perform.

Was badly flopped in test matches

Before the New Zealand series, Mohammad Rizwan scored 262 runs in 12 innings of Test matches at an average of 21.83 without a half-century. Former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed was included in the team after Rizwan was benched after a humiliating defeat in 3 Test matches against England. Mohammad Rizwan said, I was happy to see Sarfaraz perform because I wanted to do the same. He was performing in domestic matches and deserved to get a chance.

Regarding his old franchise Karachi Kings in PSL, Mohammad Rizwan said, I was not hurt when I sat on the bench in the last round of the league. At that time, keeping me on the bench was the need of Karachi Kings. Mohammad Rizwan left Karachi Kings in 2021 and joined Multan Sultan. He will captain Multan for the third consecutive season.
