Mohammad Rizwan’s passion for the sport and his zeal to represent the Pakistan cricket team is something that will act as an inspiration for all. The wicket-keeper batsman was suffering from a chest infection ahead of Pakistan’s T20 World Cup semifinal clash against Australia.
And, when he was admitted into the ICU, all that Rizwan said was ‘I want to play. I want to be with the team’. Also, Dr. Saheer Sainalabdeen, who treated Rizwan said that the 29-year-old wanted to play the match against the Australian side, and he is astonished at the pace at which the cricketer has managed to recover.
Sainalabdeen also added that it would normally take 5 to 7 days for people to recover from this type of pain. “Rizwan had a strong desire to play for his nation in the crucial knockout match. He was strong, determined, and confident. I am astonished at the pace he had recovered.
Rizwan had a severe infection. Recovery and gaining fitness before the semi-final seemed unrealistic. It would have normally taken five-seven seven days for anybody to recover, “said Dr. Sainalabdeen.
