Mohammad Rizwan won hearts by playing a brilliant inning in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup despite being ill. The wicketkeeper-batter hit four sixes and three boundaries, as Pakistan set the Australians a challenging 177-run target. Rizwan spent two nights in an intensive care unit (ICU) before the semi-finals against Australia.
Apparently, he developed a severe chest infection that required special treatment. The Indian physician who treated Rizwan at the hospital was astonished at the quick recovery of the serious cricketer. “Mujhe khelna hai, team k sath rehna hai,” (I want to play and be with the teammates), he reportedly told his doctors. Doctor Saheer Sainalabdeen said Rizwan wished to play for his country during the crucial match.
