National T20 Cup: What a win for the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) to terminate the Southern Punjab (SPU) from the tournament – absolutely appreciative. The credits highly refer to skipper Mohammad Rizwan who commanded his team professionally till the side reached the heights. Although the man was criticized for his performances and luckily, he never knew as he lingers away from social media.
Opined, the player made numerous notable performances in the National t20 Cup 2020 which might exhibit a gateway for him to get an international call for being Pakistan’s skipper. Also, his analogous spot to Sarfaraz Ahmed, which makes him the wicket-keeping finishing batsman on major occasions, might end Sarfaraz’s career soon.
Sarfaraz, who was notably sacked last year despite his poor performances and critiques, although made a comeback recently in the last T20I played against England as Pakistan won the only one out of three in his presence, he received the praise and criticism at once as he dropped Moin Ali behind the stumps. But, the player can be eliminated temporarily or as per choice, permanent, from Pakistan’s squad after what has been witnessed by his performances for Sindh.
Despite the fact that Sindh somehow managed to make it to the semifinal, but lost in the hands of the KPK as the captaincy majorly hit throughout the domestic tournament. In the mid, they (Sindh) more than once have shown pitiful bowling and fielding that captivated eyes and the determinant cannot be rejected acknowledging Sarfaraz’s spot as a skipper or as a player in the team.
Mohammad Rizwan blooms in commanding KPK, Is this the end to Sarfaraz’s international career?
In short, Mohammad Rizwan has classically shown his strings which is now hanging Sarfaraz’s career by a thread. As both players have similarities (wicket-keeping mid-over batsman), it is deservingly a place for Rizwan who exposed some gleaming fielding, leading, performance behind stumps, and yes with the bat too often too.
Comparatively tame finish in the #NationalT20Cup final, where three of the last four balls go for 6️⃣ 😅
Despite that, Kyber Pakhtunkhwa hang on to win by 10 runs 🏆 🎉
