Doctor Saheer Sainalabdeen was “astonished” to see the quick recovery made by Pakistan’s wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup semifinal against Australia in Dubai.

Rizwan was battling severe lung infection and the medical team at the Meteor Hospital gave him symptomatic medications to ease his pain.

During his stay at the hospital, he kept telling the doctors in the ICU that he wants to join his teammates as soon as possible, Dr. Saheer Sainalabdeen revealed on Saturday.

“Mujhe Khelna he. Team ke saath rehna he, (I want to play and be with the team).

“Rizwan had a strong desire to play for his nation in the crucial knockout match. He was strong, determined, and confident. I am astonished at the pace he had recovered,” recalled Dr. Sainalabdeen.

“Oesophageal spasms can feel like sudden and severe chest pain that lasts for a few minutes to hours,” said Saheer.

He was constantly monitored in the ICU. “Rizwan had a severe infection. Recovery and gaining fitness before the semifinal seemed unrealistic. It would have normally taken 5-7 days for anybody to recover,” maintained Saheer.
