The Mohammad Rizwan Story- Pakistan is currently playing South Africa in a two-Test match series. Both teams have not had the best of form in recent times. Their start to the New Year has been rather one that they would want to forget. However, they must be keen to turn things around. They will want to put in better performances and grab some crucial wins.
With that being said, there are always moments in a series that make the audiences go Oo and Aa. One such moment was also seen in this first Test match between the two teams.
Mohammad Rizwan Affects A Brilliant Run-Out
Just when the game was looking rather less eventful, Mohammad Rizwan came out and produced a moment of magic. It was something that really forced the cricketing fans to talk about. A lot of credit where it is due. It was a brilliant run-out created by Mohammad Rizwan.
Below is the video of the wicket (runout) that was trending around and being talked about on platforms like Twitter and more-

Mohammad Rizwan doesn’t always get the credit he deserves. However, he is one of the best in the world at present. The fans couldn’t help themselves but talk about the wicket. Great runout that helped Pakistan wrap up the South African innings rather quickly.
The State Of The Game And What Next For Both Teams?
At present, the game is quite equally balanced on Day 2. It is South Africa who still has a slender lead. They made 220 in the first innings. In response to that, Pakistan is currently at 208/6. There are still three complete days of cricket left. It is a game that can swing in the favour of either team.
The best optimists will say that Pakistan has a slight advantage at present. However, anything can happen in this match in the matter of a single session. It all depends on who grabs the initiative from this point in time and carries the momentum till the end of the match.
No Standout Performances In The Match So Far?
Apart from Fawad Alam who is heading towards a century, there have been no real standout performances in the match so far. Both teams have seen their ups and downs and a game-changer is needed. Alam is still there at the crease and can do that for sure. However, it will be interesting to see whether he can actually deliver at the right time or not.
A big score is needed to take home the advantage at present for Pakistan. Whether that happens or not, remains to be seen. It could be an interesting and close Test match. The game is shaping up really well. For now, Mohammad Rizwan has all the spotlight on him. Let’s see what he can do with all the attention of the Media and Social Media!!
