In-form Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan became the first batter to score 1000 runs in T20I in a calendar year as the wicket-keeper batsman slammed a half-century against Australia in T20 World Cup’s Semifinal 2 on Thursday.
Rizwan reached the unprecedented 1000-runÂ milestone in the 12th over as he shot Oz spinner Adam Zampa for a six.
At the time of writing this report, the opener fell after scoring a well-crafted 67; allowing Pakistan to put 143 runs on the board in 17.2 overs.
Interestingly, Rizwan was uncertain for the game earlier in the afternoon after it was reported that 29-year-old Pakistan player was down with mild flu.
