Soomro Says Mohd. Rizwan Was Given A Banned Substance During The #T20WC
While recently conducting Rizwan’s interview Soomro said, “You were unable to breathe and I had to get permission from the ICC to inject that medicine to help you recover. Usually, it is prohibited for the athletes but since there was no other option available, we had to take permission from the ICC to inject that medicine.”
Rizwan while explaining the ordeal had earlier said, “When I reached the hospital, I wasn’t breathing. And the nurses told me that my windpipes were choked. They were not telling me anything. I was told that I would get better by morning and discharged. During the afternoon, I was told that I will be discharged in the evening.
“So, I asked one of the nurses and then I was told that had it been late in reaching the hospital by 20 minutes, both my windpipes would have ruptured.”
