Pakistan’s wicket keeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan has praised a boy from Gilgit Baltistan who made a sketch of him. While sharing the sketch on his own Instagram, the cricketer said that it is “incredible”.

“Farhan Ali Macholvi, this is incredible. Thank you so much for your love & support. You are the pride of our Gilgit-Baltistan,” he wrote.

The cricketer further said that the children are the assets of this nation and they will make Pakistan strong.


“I strongly believe that our real assets are children. They will build a strong Pakistan. May you keep doing what you love.”

The sketch shows Rizwan in the team’s green jersey, waving at fans, as he walks by with a bat tucked under his arm, helmet in hand.

The 29-year-old cricketer won hearts of Pakistani fans with his prolific performance at the T20 World Cup 2021. He scored 281 runs in his six innings at the tournament while scoring a half century in his first ICC semi-final of his career.

Rizwan became the first player in the history of the game to score 1,000 T20I runs in a calendar year.
