Watch: Fans React Hilariously To Pakistan Wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan's Slow Batting

The Pakistan cricket team endured a disappointing campaign at the T20 World Cup 2024, sparking outrage among fans on social media. The team’s journey began with back-to-back losses against co-hosts USA and arch-rivals India. Their only win came against Canada, but it wasn’t enough to secure a spot in the Super Eight, leading to their early exit from the tournament.

Fans have been particularly critical of Pakistan’s batting lineup, which failed to impress throughout the competition. The team’s fielding and bowling were also seen as lackluster. Wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan has been singled out for his performance, especially after recording the slowest half-century in T20 World Cup history with a sluggish strike rate.


Adding to the online buzz, a spoof video of Rizwan’s slow half-century has gone viral, capturing the internet’s attention. The humorous clip shows a man dressed as the Pakistani cricketer, consistently taking singles and reaching the 50-run mark after 69 balls. Even with four runs needed off the final delivery to win, the man opts for a single to complete his half-century, much to the amusement of viewers.


Social media users have had a field day with the video, with comments ranging from “Totally agree” to “Accurate.” One user humorously remarked on Rizwan’s tendency to take a single while making it look like a diving effort, while another noted the exaggerated way he removes one hand from the bat.


Pakistan’s T20 World Cup campaign was effectively over after their defeats to the USA and India, with their elimination confirmed when the match between the USA and Ireland was washed out. This disappointing run has left fans and analysts alike questioning the team’s strategy and performance, as the squad now faces the fallout from an underwhelming tournament showing.
