Mohammad Rizwan is ready for the South Africa challenge

Wicketkeeper-batsman, Mohammad Rizwan is glad to make a comeback in Pakistan’s Test squad against South Africa.

Rizwan, who was named in the 16-member test squad on Friday, while talking to the media in Karachi said that he is looking forward to once again represent Pakistan in the longer format of the game.

“Obviously, it is a happy moment for me and I will try to avail this opportunity in the best possible way,” he said.

The 26-year-old said that he always focused on his performance rather than having concerns over his selection in the team.

“Selection is the job of selectors and what we can do is to pull their attraction with performance,” said Rizwan who has only played single Test so far.

Rizwan brushed off any sort of comparison with the skipper of the side in all three formats of the game, Sarfraz Ahmed. “My first priority is Pakistan and whoever plays well for the country, should be in the team,” he said.

The 26-year-old said that playing for Pakistan in any format always give pride. “I always feel proud to represent Pakistan either in Test, one day T20,” he said.

Rizwan has played 25 ODIs for Pakistan scoring 460 runs at an average of 28.75. He also represented Pakistan in 10 T20s.

It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan will play their first test of three matches series on December 26 at SuperSports park.
