Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif believes that wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan has a “good future in ODIs and Tests”.
Rizwan is playing for the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), but has only featured in two matches and has not had a proper opportunity to bat.
Despite this, Latif is still backing Rizwan to be Pakistan’s go-to wicketkeeper in ODI and Test cricket.
Mohammad Rizwan is excellent batsman but franchise cricket now days more demanding in strike rate Rizz SR is in T20 domestic around 115 and Chadwick Walton SR 124.5 that’s why captain and Head coach preferred Walton .. Rizwan have good future in ODI and test with national team.
