Wicketkeeper-batsman scores two half-centuries in recently concluded series against England
Pakistan’s star wicketkeeper-batsman has registered his career-best rankings in the T20 Internationals.
The 29-year-old finished the recently concluded three-match series against England as the highest run-getter with 176 runs at an average of 88 along with the strike-rate of 138.58, which included two half-centuries.
That performance pushed Rizwan — who was placed on the 159th position in December last year when Pakistan played New Zealand — four places up to the seventh position in the updated International Cricket Council (ICC) T20I rankings for batsmen.
