Pakistani keeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan is having a very good outing in the English county circuit as he turns out for Sussex along with India’s Cheteshwar Pujara. He was recently seen bowling medium pace for Sussex in their drawn game against Durham.
Talking about the game, Pujara shone with the bat to score his second double hundred in three matches. The Indian shared a century stand with Rizwan as the pair put on 154 for the sixth wicket at Hove. India cut bilateral cricket ties with Pakistan but Pujara and Rizwan's batting stand drew a lot of attention on social media.
In the video shared by Sussex's official Twitter handle, the Pakistan star can be seen running in with a short run-up and bowling a tight line against the opposition. He conceded five runs in his two overs.

"He does it all. M. Rizwan's first over in the County Championship," wrote Sussex Cricket.
This led to Rizwan’s Pakistani teammate and ace pacer Shaheen Afridi took to Twitter to jokingly request Rizwan to stop bowling else he would have to rake retirement from the game. He requested him to leave something for him as well.
“Rizzi bhai, ab kya hum retirement le lain? Ye aap kya ker rahe hain? Kuch hamare liye bhi chorh dain. :),” he tweeted.
