It is the dream of every kid who plays football as a child to play for his country and give his life for the team to win. Pakistani wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan has set a similar example. Rizwan, who was hospitalized on the night of the final match, put his health on the sidelines when the Pakistani team desperately wanted him. Rizwan, who came to the hospital with a lung infection, came into the yard wearing a national jersey as if nothing had happened to him. The Babar Azam teammate washed the Kangaroo ball throwers in the semi-finals and played 67 innings again.
Matthew Hayden reports that Muhammad Rizwan was in hospital last night.
But he played for Pakistan and fought for Pakistan. ❤💯
May Allah bless Pakistan in today’s game.
May Allah bless this flag throughout the world. 🤲🤲

Revealing this, Matthew Hayden, the coach of the Pakistani national team, said, ‘Mohammed Rizwan was in the hospital last night due to a lung infection. He is a warrior. His performance has been impressive in all of these competitions and he has great confidence. Rizwan did not allow anyone on the court even for a moment to hear that he had left the court after fighting such a great battle. Also there was no need for his game. Rizwan along with captain Babar Azam gave the team a good start in the semi-finals and shared a 71-point contract for the first wicket. Rizwan played strong innings of 67 runs in 52 balls, for which the team managed to reach 176 in 20 overs.
Mohammad Rizwan scored 281 runs in 6 World Cup matches played in the UAE and Oman ground at an impressive average of 70.25 with a hit of 127.73. The wicket-keeper played his captain Babar Azam to assist in Pakistan’s 10-wicket win against India. Australia needed 22 runs in the last two overs to win, but Matthew Wade hit hard and finished the game with six consecutive goals in the 19th over of Shaheen Afridi. Australia were once struggling to lose five wickets in 96 runs, but a strong 81-run partnership between Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade snatched victory from Pakistan. Stoinis was the team’s champion with 40 wickets from 31 balls and 41 runs in just 17 balls. David Warner also played a crucial 49 innings in 30 balls in the top flight.
