CricketBreaking opening pair has hurt Pakistan: Mohammad Rizwan

Srinagar: Pakistan opening wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan has pointed out breaking of opening pair of him and Babar Azam as one of the reason that has hurt Pakistan.

Mohammad Rizwan scored 90 run knock vs New Zealand as suffered Pakistan defeat at Christchurch’s Hagley Oval.

Pakistan scored 158 for five in 20 overs courtesy an undefeated 90-run knock from wicketkeeper-batter Rizwan.

In a post match press conference Rizwan, said that breaking his successful opening pair with Babar Azam in T20Is has negatively affected the team.

“You can say that it [breaking the opening pair] has hurt Pakistan,” Rizwan said.

“I can say that Babar bhai has a big heart. We both agreed that there is no issue [in splitting the opening pair]. We both told the management that they can try whatever combination they want. The difficulty arises when you break things that were already working well. However, management is looking at what can be extracted best from different combinations,” he added.

The fifth and final T20I of the series will take place at the same venue on Sunday.
