Rizwan was seen limping yesterday with a possible knee injury. Not only is he the only wicket-keeper in the squad but he is also Pakistan’s leading batter in the tournament. Skipper, Babar Azam isn’t in the best of forms and so the green shirts call ill-afford to lose the 30 year old.

Moreover, his possible absence will also force the men in green to opt for a replacement. Former skipper, Sarfaraz Ahmed is the obvious choice however, he doesn’t open and so, given such a scenario, changes will also be required in the batting order which shouldn’t be an ideal situation because the batters available right now are neither dependable nor the kind who have the ability to anchor an innings.
