Speaking after Pakistan’s victory in Hyderabad, Mohammad Rizwan shared a touching message about the ground’s curator, who had encouraged him to score two centuries at the ground.

“The curator here said the same thing to me. When we got to the ground for the first time, he said, Rizwan, you must hit two 100s on this ground. I met him today as well. We can pray for him and you should pray for him too,” Rizwan said.
