Pakistan’s premier wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan, who was instrumental in Pakistan’s win against India in the Asia Cup 2022 Super Four stage with a crucial half-century at the Dubai International Stadium on September 4, has been sent for scans after suffering an injury to his right knee.

Rizwan’s injury was picked up in the 15th over of the Super Four match during India’s innings after he fell trying to collect a bouncer from Mohammad Hasnain from well over his head.

Rizwan appeared to be in pain right away before Pakistan’s physio rushed to the ground to tend to him. However, even after the injury, Rizwan batted and scored a crucial for Pakistan, holding the Pakistan innings together in their run chase with a powerful 51-ball 71.
