Mohammad Rizwan has been ruling T20Is in the ongoing year. After his impressive batting display in the ICC T20 World Cup, he achieved another record in the ongoing T20I series between Bangladesh and Pakistan.
The right-handed batter, who scored 39 in the second match, went past his skipper Babar Azam and KL Rahul in the list of most 30+ scores in T20Is.
He has seventeen 30+ scores in the first 25 T20I innings as an opener. Babar and Rahul registered this feat on 16 occasions, respectively.
Earlier, Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah decided to bat first after winning the toss against Pakistan in the second game of a three-match Twenty20 series on Saturday.
Bangladesh, which lost the opening match by four wickets, named an unchanged lineup.
Pakistan rested pace bowler Hasan Ali, who was instrumental in his side’s victory in the first match, claiming 3-23.
