Mohammad Rizwan, the ICC T20I Player of the Year and Multan Sultans captain, is optimistic about the Pakistan Super League’s seventh edition (PSL). Rizwan told ProPakistani in an exclusive interview that the mood in Multan’s camp is fantastic, and that the entire squad is well prepared for the difficulties ahead.
Rizwan stated that he has advised his colleagues to forget about their previous edition’s title-winning campaign and concentrate on what lies ahead. Multan’s brain tank, he said, hasn’t even considered retaining the championship and is instead focused on taking the competition match by match.
Rizwan went on to say that the club is devising new plans ahead of the next season in order to increase their chances of winning the PSL title once more.
Multan has a lot of options at their disposal, according to the gritty wicket-keeper batsman, and it will be easy for him to manage such an exciting team. Multan has amazing batters, exceptional bowlers, wonderful all-rounders, and outstanding power-hitters, according to him, all of whom will play important roles during the tournament.
There are no platinum, diamond, or silver players on the team, according to Rizwan. There are athletes who just have one goal in mind: to assist their team win games and, ultimately, the championship. He went on to say that each member of the team is important and has a role to play in the mega-event.
The 29-year-old also said that Pakistan’s express pacers, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Hasan Ali, are three of the most difficult bowlers he has faced in the PSL because they have a knack for rapidly identifying the batter’s weaknesses. He went on to say that the country has a lot of bowling skill and that some intriguing young pacers are rising up through the ranks.
Rizwan will be in action on the first night of the PSL 7, when Multan Sultans take on Karachi Kings in a bid to maintain their crown. The match will begin at 8 p.m. at Karachi’s National Stadium.
