Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman, Mohammad Rizwan, continued his rich vein of form as he played a blistering 73-run knock from 39 balls, to help Comilla Victorians register an seven-wicket win over Khulna Tigers on Tuesday in BPL.
Rizwan was also adjudged player of the match in his last BPL game for scoring unbeaten 54 from 47 balls. However, he was still criticised by some fans for starting his innings slow.

However, there was no stopping Rizwan from the get go on Tuesday, as he smashed a fifty in just 24 balls, while chasing 211 runs. It is the second-fastest fifty of Rizwan’s T20 career, only behind 19-ball fifty for Sussex last year in Vitality Blast.
Pakistan batter took a particular liking to Shafiqul Islam, as he scored 18 runs against the pacer in an over, which included three fours and a six.
Rizwan’s smashed a total of eight fours and four sixes during his stay, which set a perfect platform for his side to chase the mammoth total.
The wicketkeeper-batsman stitched a 122-run partnership with Johnson Charles before he was dismissed by Nasum Ahmed while his side still needed 67 runs from 36 balls.
Charles continued the momentum from the partnership to complete his century from 53 balls and take his team over the finish line. The West Indies batsman remained unbeaten on 107 from 56 balls.
