T20 World Cup 2021: Rizwan’s spectacular feat for Pakistan


1033 The number of T20 international runs accumulated by Pakistani Mohammad Rizwan in this calendar year. This is now the most by any batter in a single year in this format in international cricket. In doing so, he also became the first batter in T20I history to aggregate over 1000 runs in a single calendar year. He achieved this feat in the T20WC semifinal match against Australia in Dubai on November 11, 2021 during his knock of 67.
