South African bowler Tabraiz Shamsi on Wednesday asked Pakistani wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan to give "someone else a chance" to score runs. 

Taking to Twitter after Pakistan's win against Zimbabwe in the first T20I, Shamsi said that Mohammad Rizwan is "still scoring runs for fun".

"Give someone else a chance also brother. Other people have to make a living too," added Shamsi.

The South African was responding to Pakistan Cricket Board's tweet that included a picture of Rizwan with his player of the match award.

Pakistan on Wednesday defeated Zimbabwe by 11 runs, successfully defending their 149-run total in the first fixture of the three-match T20I series at the Harare Sports Club.

Rizwan's 82-run innings helped Pakistan set a target of 150 runs for Zimbabwe after the Men In Green were asked to bat first after the home team won the toss.

The wicketkeeper-batsman is in phenomenal form and scoring runs for his team.
