‘I, Babar often criticized for SR, despite we chased 200 against SA’ Rizwan


Mohammad Rizwan believes that Strike-Rate of batters must vary from situation to situation as hitting the ball doesn’t work every time.

Speaking to reporters prior to their first-ever PSL final tomorrow at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, Rizwan shared his feedback on people talking about his and Babar Azam’s strike rate in T20 format.

“I and Babar Bhai often suffered criticism for strike-rate in T20 format. See, it all depends on the situation. In today’s cricket, the one who hits the ball every time, usually considered to have a good strike rate,” he stressed.

“For me, there is a difference in it. Bein a captain of Multan Sultans, I want players who play according to the situation. Let’s take the example of Shan Masood, see his stats, you will find proper cricketing shots with a strike rate of around 140-145. But, more important to us is that he is winning games for us,” he shared.
