“Mohammad Rizwan and Faheem Ashraf are now the pillars of our team,” he said. “They are playing regularly and this is exactly why we had retained them as we knew they could prove useful any time.
“We needed a bowling all-rounder at number seven, which is why we had kept Faheem Ashraf with us.
“Mohammad Rizwan is very hardworking. He was given a chance and he made full use of it.”
Keep in mind that, Mohammad Rizwan was the man of the series in the test series against proteas. He made regular contributions with the bat to go with his reliable keeping of the wickets.
