The 29-year-old Rizwan claimed three victims behind the wickets during Multan Sultans’ final against Peshawar Zalmi to take his total tally of PSL 6 dismissals behind the wickets to 20.
His dismissals included 18 catches and 2 stumpings from 12 matches.
This makes him the first-ever Pakistani wicket-keeper to have 20 dismissals behind the wickets in a single edition of any tournament.
However, the Pakistani sports fraternity, politicians and fans felicitated the Rizwan-led Multan Sultans on becoming the new champions of Pakistan Super League season 6.
Shoaib Malik, the Peshawar Zalmi player, tweeted, “A win for a truly deserving camp; great game overall Multan Sultans! This wasn’t our year but it feels good to have pitched against a well-rounded team and here’s to coming back strong for the next season. Until then #MatchDhikao, Dare to Dream & Stay Safe!”
