At 31 years old, Rizwan was the leading six-hitter for Pakistan in T20Is, surpassing Mohammad Hafeez, who previously held the record with 76 maximums. Rizwan now boasts an impressive tally of 77 sixes in T20I cricket, showcasing his prowess with the bat.

Most Sixes by Pakistan Players in T20I

  1. Mohammad Rizwan — 77
  2. Mohammad Hafeez — 76
  3. Shahid Afridi — 73
  4. Shoaib Malik — 69
  5. Babar Azam — 55
  6. Umar Akmal — 55

It’s worth noting that Pakistan is currently engaged in a five-match T20I series against New Zealand.

During the second T20I, Rizwan kicked off Pakistan’s chase of 195 runs by confidently smashing a six off Tim Southee. However, his innings were short-lived as Adam Milne dismissed him in the second over after scoring just seven runs.

As of the latest update, Pakistan was at 48-2 in five overs, with Babar Azam at 22* and Fakhar Zaman at 17* at the crease.

In the first innings, Finn Allen played a pivotal role for New Zealand, powering them to a total of 194 runs. Allen’s explosive innings of 74 runs off 41 balls, featuring seven fours and five sixes, set the stage for a substantial total. Despite his early departure in the 13th over, New Zealand struggled to maintain momentum, scoring only 57 runs in the remaining seven overs.

Pakistan’s bowlers, led by Haris Rauf, made a strong comeback, limiting the in-form Kiwis to 194 runs. Haris Rauf claimed three wickets in the 19th over, emerging as Pakistan’s top wicket-taker. Except for skipper Shaheen Afridi, all of Pakistan’s bowlers contributed by taking wickets.
