While praising the performance of Pakistan’s openers, Babar Azam and Mohd. Rizwan, Hayden said, “Babar and Rizwan have created a unique opening for themselves. They are very independent players with their own styles but that blend and mix make for the perfect combination. They are unique and it’s special to watch the way they have gone about playing in this World Cup. They chased down a target against India for victory in a perfect run chase, none down for a victory that Pakistan will remember.”

Explaining his strategy as an opener wicket-keeper batsman, Rizwan said, “We support each other and although we are not power hitters, we have a good record. If I get out early, he is needed to anchor the innings; if he falls, I am given the task to carry on.”
