Mohammad Rizwan became the captain of Multan Sultans before the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021, and guided them to their first PSL victory in style. He considers himself to have come a long way since his time with the Karachi Kings, which he now considers to be one of the darkest periods of his career.
From PSL 2018 until PSL 2020, he was a member of the Karachi Kings. Despite the fact that Karachi Kings won the PSL during this period, Rizwan was never a regular starter and spent much of his time in the bench.

Mohammad Rizwan scored an undefeated 52 runs off 47 balls to lead Multan Sultans to an easy victory over his previous team in the PSL 2022 opener Friday night.
During the post-match press conference, Rizwan thanked the Multan Sultans management for believing in him, but he also made a dig at the Karachi Kings.
For three years, I sat on the sidelines of the PSL, declared ineligible to compete. But, when the time came, Multan Sultans not only picked me, but also made me captain, and we won the PSL.
Multan Sultans defeated Karachi Kings by 7 wickets to begin their PSL championship defence. Multan Sultans will now meet Lahore Qalandars tomorrow, with Karachi Kings facing Quetta Gladiators the following day.
