Rizwan had spent two days in ICU before the T20 World Cup semi-final match played on Thursday in Dubai!

Mohammad Rizwan top-scored with 67 in Thursday’s T20 World Cup semi-final against Australia despite spending two days in a hospital intensive care unit. 

The update was revealed by the Green Team doctor during the presser following Pakistan’s five-wicket loss in the semifinal.

“Mohammad Rizwan developed a severe chest infection on November 9th after which he was admitted to the hospital. He spent two nights in the ICU recovering,” Pakistan’s team doctor Najeeb Somroo said.

“He made an incredible recovery and was deemed fit before the match. We can see his great determination and tenacity that shows his spirit of performing for the country. And we can see how he performed today.”

“The decision regarding his health was made by the whole team management. This was regarding the morale of the whole team and therefore we kept it within the team,” Dr. Somroo added.
