The wicketkeeper-batsman says said he will play whenever playing for Pakistan will be in his fate
KARACHI: Mohammad Rizwan, wicketkeeper-batsman of Pakistan cricket team, has said that he doesn’t blame Sarfaraz Ahmed for his non-inclusion in the team.
Speaking to journalists in Karachi during pre-tournament press conference of Emerging Teams Asia Cup, the batsman said he will play whenever playing for Pakistan will be in his fate.
“I don’t think like that,” he said, when asked if he finds himself unlucky that the national team is currently led by a wicketkeeper and that blocks his way to the national squad.
“I have played enough ODIs with Sarfaraz as batsman and that can happen in future too as there are teams travelling with two wicketkeepers,” he said.
“But, I don’t think I’m not playing for Pakistan because of Sarfraz. I will play whenever it’s written for me,” he added.
The 26-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman from Peshawar expressed his delight on current form and said that he’s in the best form of his career.
“I’m at my peak at the moment. I have never scored so consistently before and I’m happy that my hard work is paying me back,” Rizwan said.
“I will continue to perform and that’s my job. It’s up to selectors where they find me fit to be included in national team.”
