Mohammad Rizwan playing a drive.He first made his mark in cricket while playing for Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited during the final of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy when he scored 224-runs and helped his side clinch the title for the second time in 2014-15. Talking about his List-A career, he played a role of a wicketkeeper batter for Pakistan-A in a limited-overs format against the Kenya team in December 2014.He made his first international appearance after the 2015 ODI World Cup in April 2015 against Bangladesh in an ODI in which he scored 67 runs of 58 balls. Bangladesh was batting first and gave Pakistan the target of 330 runs. While chasing, Rizwan came at the number three in 28th over when their captain Azhar Ali got dismissed by Taskin Ahmed. Rizwan held a steady partnership and took the teams total to 249 runs, though Pakistan lost the match by 79 runs. In his next two games, he could only score 13 and 4 runs, respectively. Mohammad Rizwan received his international cap from Waqar Younis.In the same month, he made his T20I debut against Bangladesh where he didnt get the chance to bat. He first batted in a T20I against Zimbabwe on 24 May 2015 at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. Zimbabwe scored mammoth 175 runs in the first inning. Pakistan on the other hand, with the help of Mukhtar Ahmeds fifty and Umar Akmals 30 runs, chased the target with two balls to spare. Rizwan came at the seventh position but could only manage to score six runs. He went through a bad patch later, when he struggles against the bowling attacks of England and New Zealand. Even he struggled against the pace attacks of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka during the late 2016s. As a result, he lost his place in the 2016 T20 World Cup.As Sarfraz was securing his place, Rizwans opportunities seemed to fade away until November 2016, when he made his test debut against New Zealand. Rizwan couldnt do much in this match and got out on a golden duck of the bowling of Neil Wagner while hooking a shorter delivery that went into the hands of the square-leg fielder. Rizwan then got the chance to bat in the second inning and remained not out on 13 runs after staying for 57 minutes. New Zealand won this match by 138 runs. Rizwans all debuting international games ended on a losing side. Following the ODI series against Australia in early 2017, his international career was at the fate. He wasnt reckoned for any of the matches later on. Where Sarfraz led Pakistan to the 2017 Champions Trophy, Rizwan was seen grinding himself in the domestic circuit.

Soon, on 1 May 2018, he made his highest score against the Federal Areas in a List-A match, where he scored 140 runs of 123 balls. In March 2019, he led the captaincy of the Federal Areas for the Pakistan Cup.Later in the same year, he was also made the captain of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for the 201920 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. He continued his form with his all-round performance of scoring 215 runs and taking six wickets in the 2019-20 National T20 Cup.He was constantly making his mark in the shorter format of the game, and soon, he was awarded the central contract for the 2018-19 season along with 32 other players by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). He then led the charge of Pakistans team in the 2018 ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup. Under his leadership, Pakistan reached the semi-finals.He scored his first ODI century against Australia on 24 March 2019 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in the UAE. He was batting at the fourth position when his team lost two quick wickets within a span of seven overs. Rizwan scored gritty 115 runs with a strike rate of almost 91 and helped his side give a formidable target of 285 runs. Aussies easily chased the target with 13 balls to spare after losing just two wickets. Five days later, he again scored a hundred against the same side at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Pakistan was given the target of 278 runs. They were losing wickets in quick successions, but Rizwan along with Abid Ali, built a partnership of 144 runs and took the side closer to the target, but they lost the match by six runs.

Rizwan was placed in the side for the series against South Africa. However, he couldnt do much, and in his last 11 international series, he was gone without scoring even a fifty from his bat. But again he was given a chance against Australia in a one-dayers. Rizwan grabbed the opportunity and smashed two centuries in the series, which prompt national selectors to pick him for the three-match series against Sri Lanka in Karachi. Pakistan failed to make it to the semis of the World Cup. Misbah-Ul-Haq was made the coach of the team. Talking about Rizwans inclusion in the line-up, Misbah told the media, Sarfaraz and Rizwans roles are different. If someone has scored two hundred at No. 4, you have a chance. You have the added advantage of having two wicketkeepers, fitness-wise he is very good, and he will be in the loop. We are trying to encourage such players and we will try to give them matches whenever we have a chance..
