Pakistan batsman Fawad Alam has predicted that wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan will score many more centuries in the future.
This comes after Rizwan struck his maiden T20 International hundred in the recent series against South Africa.
Fawad said the innings was “brilliant” and “gutsy”, and backed Rizwan to post more triple figure scores as he has been in outstanding form as of late.
By the blessings of Allah Pakistan has once again raised the bar by winning the first T20 against South Africa. Brilliant gutsy century by @mohammadrizwan 👏. It was his first and many more to come. Congratulations Pakistan 🇵🇰 #MohammadRizwan #PAKvSA
