“I picked Mohammad Rizwan because you can just rely on him in any situation. He’ll score whatever type of runs you need and he’s very good technically,” Gardner said. Gardner said Pakistan’s opening batsman is a “man for all situations”. White-ball cricket shows that he has sound technique and is capable of batting in Tests as well.
