Rizwan Says Average Players Look At Averages Big Players Will Look At The Team

“Firstly the teams that you are representing keep that [role] in front. And if you think of yourself in that case like players who think like let me save myself, he won’t go far. Those players who look at averages are average players.

If someone is performing it will be there in the stats for people to see. Like say, India’s Virat Kohli, is getting his average higher but he is not focusing on that because average players look at average. And big players will look at the team and the situation and my focus remains on what is the requirement of the team,” Rizwan said.

“The team says Rizwan look at the board and play accordingly. I maintain the same thing in my own life too but it is not easy. In T20 playing the new ball and in ODI go after 25 overs when the ball is a bit old that is not easy and it is a mind game,” he added.

Rizwan Also Shed Light On Team Management’s Rationale

Rizwan also shed light on team management’s rationale behind splitting his opening combination with Babar Azam in T20Is. “Our management and captain said that we are trying out different things for the World Cup and for that.

We want to see what can be our best XI. Like say, we can have a left-right combination at the top. And Saim Ayub is a left-hander. There is Fakhar Zaman also so for the World Cup. We were experimenting with a left-right combination,” Rizwan said.

“I don’t think it is a wrong decision and if I am destined to [open] in that case I will do it in the future. I am not angry with the thinking process of the management and neither is Babar Azam. Look they said, we are going to West Indies and there will be spin. And every country is trying for left-right combination and so our management is also giving that a thought,” he concluded.

Rizwan On Shaheen Afridi Captaincy Shaheen Afridi

Rizwan on Shaheen Afridi captaincy Shaheen Afridi led the Pakistan T20I team for the first time in his career during the T20I series against New Zealand. Even though Pakistan managed to win one game of the five-match series. Rizwan praised Shaheen Afridi’s captaincy and talked about his “unique quality”.

“He [Shaheen Afridi] is a very good captain and I have seen him in Lahore Qalandars and other teams where I was his teammate and he is that kind of a player who neither loses his heart nor courage till the end of a game. In the recent past against New Zealand, we scored 228, 220 and we lost the match.

And in the last game, we made about 135 runs and it looked like they would chase it down in 12 overs. But when Shaheen came down to the huddle he said that we have to win this game and show this world.
