The 29-year-old, who was recently awarded the most valuable player of 2021 award, has warmly welcomed the statements of the Australian players, former cricketers, and the broadcaster looking forward to touring Pakistan.
Australia is scheduled to visit Pakistan for three Tests, three ODIs, and a T20I in March and April. All three tests are part of the ICC World Test Championship, while the three ODIs are part of ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League. This will be the Aussies’ first visit to Pakistan in 24 years.
“I can feel ripples of excitement for Australia’s tour of Pakistan”,Rizwan told PCB digital.
“I have read some very positive remarks from the stakeholders in Australia about the tour to Pakistan. The entire nation of Pakistan is ready to welcome Australia for the historic tour after 24 years.”
The right-hander also added the fact that a strong bond between the players of both the countries adds more excitement to the tour.
“Both nations share a strong connection. Australian cricketers like Usman Khawaja participate in the HBL PSL, and our players (Shadab Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, and Mohammad Hasnain) were recently featured in the KFC Big Bash League 2021-22. This further strengthens the bond between the two countries.
“Matthew Hayden, who was the batting consultant of Pakistan cricket team for ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, passionately shared his views about Pakistan. Similarly, the love and admiration in Justin Langer, head coach of Australia, eyes were prominent for Pakistan when I met him at the semi-final of the global event in Dubai.”
“Australia has recently won the Ashes and they are a strong side, but we have also had a tremendous year and have shined brightly across all formats. These two teams make the perfect recipe for a thrilling and exciting series,”Rizwan replied to the competitiveness of the series.
