Video of Rizwan’s Jonty Rhodes-Like Run Out Goes Viral
Pakistan wicket-keeper, Mohammad Rizwan, has silenced his critics with exceptional batting and impressive glove-work behind the stumps across all three formats. Rizwan scored a magnificent century and then pulled off an amazing run out in the second innings and was named man of the match in the first T20I.
Rizwan’s incredible run out of the South African batsman, Reeza Hendricks, turned the tide in Pakistan’s favor. The dismissal of the set batsman derailed the South African innings as Pakistan went onto win the match by 3 runs.
Rizwan Continues to Break Records With Yet Another Brilliant Century
The incredible run out has left the fans in awe and its video has been doing the rounds on social media. The run out has been compared to the infamous run out of Inzamam-ul-Haq by South African cricketer, Jonty Rhodes, in the 1992 Cricket World Cup.
Cricket journalist, Faizan Lakhani, shared the images of the two run outs on his Twitter account and captioned the tweet, ‘scores settled.’

Younis Khan Suggests New Plan to Improve Pakistan’s Batting Potential
Pakistan, on the other hand, is not regarded as a top fielding nation. Athleticism does not come naturally to Pakistanis, but the trend is slowly changing. With a lot of emphasis on fitness, we have seen the standard of fielding improve over the years.
Mohammad Rizwan is a prime example. Regarded as one of the best wicket-keepers in the game, he displayed his excellent glove-work on the tour of New Zealand and England. Rizwan’s run out of Reeza Hendricks has got the Pakistani fans excited once again.
