Mohammad Rizwan has made it clear that he has a good relationship with fellow Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Rizwan, who has been in sublime form lately, has overtaken Sarfaraz as Pakistan’s go-to wicketkeeper-batsman, but he insisted that there is no bad blood between them.
“I share [a] good relationship with him [Sarfaraz Ahmed] and other members of the team as a united team is important to achieve good results on the field,” the 28-year-old told Cricket Pakistan.

In the two-Test series that followed, he made 202 runs, which included three half-centuries, at an average of 50.50.
