“We will give our 100 per cent on the field but I would like to request the fans to keep praying for us. The last two matches were disappointing for the nation and us. But the team did well today and hopefully, we can carry on with the same momentum," said Rizwan in a video released by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) following a win over the Netherlands on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Rizwan hailed speedster Mohammad Wasim Jr. for brilliantly filling the fourth pacer role. The emerging all-rounder was the pick of the fast bowlers as he finished with 2/15 in his three overs. Earlier, the right-arm pacer bagged four wickets against Zimbabwe on Thursday.
“There was a missing link in our bowling attack but that role has been fulfilled nicely by Wasim Jr,”
“He is a plus point in our bowling, especially ahead of our two remaining matches," he added.

Rizwan also hailed other bowlers for bowling well as expected. “Shaheen, Naseem, Haris, and the rest of the bowlers are also doing well as expected. Shadab Khan did well in the previous match and today as well. He is a very important member of our side,” he concluded.
Pakistan will take on South Africa in their fourth Group 2 fixture on November 3 at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
