Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan became the fastest batsman to complete 3 000 runs in Twenty20 international cricket during the second match against New Zealand in Rawalpindi on Saturday.

The 31-year-old reached the milestone when he reached 19 during his innings of 45 not out which helped Pakistan chase down a modest 91-run target in 12.1 overs for a seven-wicket victory.

This was Rizwan’s 79th Twenty20 innings, beating his skipper Babar Azam and Indian great Virat Kohli who both completed 3 000 runs in 81 T20I innings.

Rizwan is the eighth batsman to score 3 000 or more runs in Twenty20 internationals with Kohli top of the charts with 4 037 in 117 matches.

Pakistan took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series with the first game washed out after just two balls, also in Rawalpindi, on Thursday. — SuperSport.
