Mohammad Rizwan: Some players want rest before T20 World Cup

Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan said that some players want to rest ahead of the T20 World Cup so that the team remains mentally and physically fit for the tournament.

Pakistan is scheduled to play the ODI series against Afghanistan in Sri Lanka during the first week of September. Currently, Pakistan is playing in West Indies and preparing for the 2nd Test against West Indies.

In an interview, Rizwan told, “We have been playing continuously for last eight to nine months and the main thing is we are playing bio-secure bubble which is quite tough,”

He added, “Our main event is T20 World Cup and most of the senior players want to rest. Our physio has also suggested rest for our body and the players sitting on the bench have the best opportunity to showcase themselves,”

However, Rizwan denied the rumors that Chief Selector Mohammad Wasim and Babar Azam are divided on the selection of the team members.

He said, “I did not hear that there was any problem between the captain and the chief selector

He further said, There is no such thing that the captain and the chief selector are not on the same page, we are all one. Yes, there can be differences in opinion but in the end, we try to make decisions in the favor of the team,”

For now, Mohammad Rizwan is self-assured that his team will make a comeback in the 2nd Test against the West Indies after losing the 1st test by 1 wicket only.
