Wicketkeeper batter Mohammad Rizwan will have an MRI today after suffering a strain in his right leg against India.

The right-handed opener delivered an explosive 71 off 51 deliveries against India, allowing the Men in Green to deal a devastating blow to their arch-rivals in a 5-wicket victory.

According to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Rizwan suffered the strain after he made a risky landing on his right leg while he was behind the stumps.

The MRI will act as a precaution since the player continued despite the injury and score a fantastic 71-run knock.

The wicketkeeper-batter hit six boundaries and struck two maximums before being dismissed by Hardik Pandya.

Pakistan, who were beaten in the opening tie against India, have gotten their revenge as they head into the crucial stage of the tournament.

There is a chance that India and Pakistan will both meet again in the final. Irrespective of whether that happens or not, Pakistan need Rizwan back to full fitness as he is an integral part of the Pakistan set up.
