Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan explained the severity of his condition when he was taken to the hospital and revealed the words of the Indian doctor who treated him. Rizwan suffered an intermittent fever, persistent cough, and chest tightness for 3-5 days before being hospitalised, and later it was revealed that Rizwan had severe laryngeal infection leading to an oesophagal spasm and bronchospasm.

Rizwan has been one of the key contributors in the Pakistan batting lineup, and he did not want to miss out on the semi-finals considering his excellent form in the year in T20Is. Despite being hospitalised prior to the day of the semi-finals, Rizwan fought through his pains and played a valiant knock of 67 against Australia. However, Pakistan couldn’t progress through to the semi-finals as Australia pulled off a thriller.

Mohammad Rizwan Explains The Hospital Scenario

Mohammad Rizwan mentioned that the nurses had told him initially that his windpipes were choked and he will need a day time to get discharged. However, in the evening, he was told again that if he had reached the hospital 20 minutes later, he could have had his windpipe burst.

“When I reached the hospital, I wasn’t breathing. And the nurses told me that my windpipes were choked. They were not telling me anything. I was told that I would get better by morning and discharged.”

“During the afternoon, I was told that I will be discharged in the evening. So, I asked one of the nurses and then I was told that had it been late in reaching the hospital by 20 minutes, both my windpipes would have burst. You will have to be there for two nights or more,” Mohammad Rizwan told Cricket Pakistan.
