The skipper further said that they communicate well, and if Rizwan struggling to tee off, I go after the bowlers, and if I’m struggling, he does the same.

According to ESPN, Rizwan’s stats are “bewildering”, as he has scored seven 50s, a hundred in 14 innings this year. Meanwhile, the duo have a score of an average of 52.1 runs per innings, during the 10 occasions that they have opened for Pakistan, neither of them has a score of below 35.
