Netizens blame Rizwan for Babar’s failures

Netizens blame Rizwan for Babar's failures

Since Pakistan have lost the second close encounter of the Super 12 round of the T20 World Cup 2022, the core batters Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam are in hot waters. More than the middle-order, the fanatics and experts find them as responsible, and to be specific, Rizwan.

They believe Rizwan is the reason for creating pressure on Azam, eventually getting him out. Targeting his slow approach to open the inning and rotate the strike, fans have lashed out at Rizwan, who often fails to rotate the strike.

Where other teams do magical batting in powerplays, Pakistan hardly cross their 30s which seems to have cost them on multiple occasions. For example, the score could have been much greater than 160 if the opening duo had performed against India.

Similarly, things would have ended in Pakistan’s favour had there been a solid opening from Babar and Rizwan. However, rather than believing both at mistakes, fans find Rizwan as the base reason for the failure of the skipper’s batting.

Doing some maths, the experts have also calculated and compared the captain’s batting average while opening with Fakhar Zaman and Rizwan. They have found the one with the left-handed batter sound, whereas the one with Rizwan is not up to the mark.

Here is how fans and experts share their feelings about once everyone’s favourite Mohammad Rizwan

A fan mentioned that he loves Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan; both do no wonders in the T20I powerplays.

A user wrote that the Babar Rizwan duo is to be blamed as a whole since they are pretending to be best but are not.

One of the local journalists feels Rizwan is not best-suited to T20Is.

Another user pointed out Babar’s averages while batting with Fakhar and Rizwan.

One of the fans hilariously trolled Babar and Rizwan for skipping warm-up matches so the middle-order can practice. However, they themselves have failed to deliver in the main round.

Another local journalist has written that the slow intent at the opening wicket-keeping batter falls into, is destructive, which also puts pressure on Babar.

Statistician Mazher Arshad pointed out that Babar has a great batting average while opening the innings with Fakhar, while he averages only 32 while opening with Rizwan. He believes playing with Fakhar to open the innings eases pressure on Babar as the core batter, while playing with Rizwan’s approach puts him under pressure.
