Wicket-keeper batsman Mohd. Rizwan became only the second Pakistani cricketer after Ahmed Shehzad to score a T20 century during the game yesterday. The Peshawar born carried the bat to pile 104 runs of 64 deliveries. The 28 year old hit six fours and seven sixes (i.e. the most by a Pakistani batsman ever in a T20 international). Rizwan then is also only the second player after Brendon McCullum who has scored a century in all three formats.

The pacer then was disappointing once more as he gave away 44 runs in his four overs!
