In-form wicketkeeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan smashed a maiden hundred to guide Pakistan to 169-6 in the first Twenty20 International against South Africa in Lahore on Thursday.

Rizwan finished with 64-ball 104 not out comprising of six boundaries and seven sixes after South Africa won the toss and sent Pakistan in to bat at Gaddafi stadium.

Rizwan hit pacer Andile Phehlukwayo for his seventh hit over the boundary to become only the second Pakistani batsman to score a Twenty20 International hundred.

Here is how Twitter reacted:


Mohammad Rizwan is the first Pakistan batsman to hit 7 sixes in an innings and second one, after Ahmed Shehzad, to score 100 in T20Is. #PakvRSA

Incredible T20I century by Mohammad Rizwan. Top quality inns after losing Asia's best allformat batsman in the 1st over. Rizwan is one of the greatest finds for Pakistan. Sarfaraz Ahmed is the happiest player everytime Rizwan scores. Brilliant team spirit.👏@iMRizwanPak #Cricket

Yasir Shah told Rizwan that he’ll only rate him as a batsman if he gets 100s. How SA would’ve hoped Yasir had just kept quiet 🤫 #PAKvsSA

Mohammad Rizwan:

They said he wasn't a Test player
They said he wasn't a good enough wicket-keeper
Some said he wasn't good enough to play ODIs
Some said he wasn't a T20I player
Some say he's not good enough to play in the PSL#Cricket

Fair to say Mohammad Rizwan is seeing it like a beach ball these days.#PAKvSA

Ahmed Shehzad had hit a T20I hundred for Pakistan against Bangladesh in the Twenty20 World Cup in Dhaka in 2014.

Haider Ali was the other main run getter with 21.

Andile Phehlukwayo was the pick of South African bowlers with 2-33.

The remaining two matches will be played on Saturday and Sunday, also in Lahore.
