KARACHI: Pakistan’s cricket team and Multan Sultan goalie hitter Mohammad Rizwan added another feather to his name on Thursday when he became the most successful Pakistani goalkeeper in an edition of any T20 tournament worldwide.
The 29-year-old Rizwan claimed three victims behind the wickets during the Multan Sultans-Peshawar Zalmi final to bring his total PSL 6 layoffs behind the wickets to 20.
His layoffs included 18 receptions and 2 stumpings from 12 games.
This makes him the first Pakistani goalkeeper to have 20 layoffs behind the grounds in a single edition of any tournament.
The second Pakistani on the list is Kamran Akmal, who had 16 layoffs to his name in a single edition of a T20 tournament.
Rizwan’s total tally of 20 wicket maintenance layoffs is the third highest for any wicket carrier in the world, in a single tournament edition.
The list is headed by Rishab Pant from India, who claimed 24 layoffs in 16 games for the Delhi capitals during the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League.
South African cricketer Quinton de Kock had 22 victims during the 2020-21 IPL while playing for the Mumbai Indians.
