Former Pakistan captain Inzamam ul Haq, in his latest YouTube video, said that wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan is completely useless batting down the order for the Men in Green in Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is).
The 50-year-old believes that the best version of Rizwan, judging from his batting abilities, will be up the order.
“I am happy that they [rewarded] Rizwan for his Test match form. Picking Rizwan was still a difficult choice to make [even though] his wicketkeeping was already brilliant,” said Inzamam.
“We weren’t able to see his batting though. In order to see the best version of Rizwan as a batsman, they’d have to send him to bat up the order. If you don’t play him in top order then he’d be completely useless. Lower down the order, Sarfaraz Ahmed is more effective than Rizwan,” he added.
