Win Or Lose – Humein Tum Se Pyar Hai Muhammad Rizwan!
Catch the twitter talk & why Pakistanis are making Rizwan trend for 2 days straight
We love heroes. If Pakistanis love to make anyone trend other than Atif Aslam (a weekly phenomenon), or Shahid Afridi, for that matter, it is news that someone has gone above & beyond the call of duty for their nation – yes, we are patriotic human beings, especially when the patriotism comes from someone else.
But to cut to the quick, and go low on the sarcasm, Muhammad Rizwan has been making news long after the semis are over & we’re loving it!
We love heroes. Club that together with cricket heroes and you’ve got a twitter trend! Muhammad Rizwan no doubt proved his mettle by whizzing in and out of the hospital to make it just in time for the World T20 Semi Final match between Pakistan & New Zealand. Not just that, but he made his time count on the field as he went on to break records, give Pakistan a fighting score on the board and made our exit from the T20 World Cup as graceful as it could possibly be.
This week, Pakistan’s cricketing heroes proved that our nation will come together to salute (and not troll) heroes if they’ve given their best on the field.
So here go some choice twitter tweets to tell you why Pakistanis are tweeting #MuhammadRizwan well after the last ball was bowled (did it go for a six)? It doesn’t matter, because we have Muhammad Rizwan!
First Things First! Muhammad Rizwan got the runs, and that’s what counts!
He became the only batsman in history to score 1000 runs in a year!
Most runs in a calendar. well done buddy.
Iron man Much? He Continued Giving That Ball A Go Despite Getting Hit!
Indian Cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin tweeted for Muhammad Rizwan – Now That’s A Win-Win On Both Sides Of The Border!
Despite being trolled for it
More Numbers To Tell Us How It Was!
he had a chest infection and spent two nights in ICU before today’s innings of 67 off 52 balls. Forever supporting this man. i’m so proud of him
And His Doctor Told Us About His Determination, Tenacity & Spirit!
Well Done You!
Yes, we are so, so proud! Keep on playing Muhammad Rizwan, you gave us a game to watch, even it meant a loss that showed us you went down fighting and that’s what mattered!
Muhammad Rizwan might not have won us the World Cup, but what he and the team accomplished in the UAE was no mean feat. We witnessed a team that played together, stayed together, where every match delivered a different player of the match – one man fighting does not a cricket team make, and you proved that in the T20 World Cup 2021.
However, Muhammad Rizwan’s contribution on the semi final day allowed us to hold our heads high, and inspired the entire team to deliver their best on the field. One team must lose, it’s a game after all, but to lose, keeping your respect intact is a trophy winning performance indeed, a trophy that was won in the hearts of all Pakistanis – and that’s what matters!
