The ICC on Sunday named Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan as the Men’s T20 Cricketer of the Year for his impressive performance in 2021. Last year, Rizwan appeared in excellent form and due to his excellent batting, Pakistan managed to make it to the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
Rizwan scored 1,326 runs in just 29 matches at an average of 73.66 and a strike rate of 134.89. Apart from his stellar performance with the bat, Rizwan impressed behind the wicket as well and played a key role in helping Pakistan reach the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2021.

Rizwan was the third top scorer of the tournament. He also scored the first century of his T20 International career against South Africa in Lahore in 2021 and scored 87 runs in the final T20I of the year against West Indies in Karachi.
There is another T20 World Cup to be held next year and in such a situation, Pakistan will hope that Rizwan will continue this performance.
Rizwan also scored an unbeaten 79 off 55 balls against India in the first match of the T20 World Cup, helping Pakistan register their first win in this global tournament against arch-rivals.
