Pakistani captain Babar Azam praised Babar Lizwan’s opening round in the ICU unit of a hospital in Dubai, defeating the team’s high score after losing to Australia in the team’s World T20 semifinals.
Two members of the Pakistani team, including Lizwan, were reportedly sent to the test before the match after flu-like symptoms appeared on Tuesday.
However, it was only after the match that the true extent of Lizwan’s battle was fully revealed.
He was hospitalized for 48 hours after developing a severe chest infection, stayed in the ICU for two nights, then got up from bed and demanded a match against Australia, scoring 67 points with 52 balls.
“No doubt he’s a teamman,” Arzam said.
“His way of playing today was extraordinary. He was a little depressed when I saw him, but when I asked him about his health, he no, I He said he would play, and the way he played today showed him to be a teamman, and I’m very confident in his attitude and performance. “

Pakistani team doctor Najid Somru said Lizwan had made an “incredible recovery” to play.
“Mohammad Lizwan developed a severe chest infection on November 9, and was subsequently admitted to the hospital. He stayed in the ICU for two nights to recover,” said Somoro.
“He made an incredible recovery and was considered healthy before the match.
“You can see that his great determination and tenacity show the spirit of playing for the country, and you can see how he played today.
Somru said a decision was made not to announce the seriousness of Lizwan’s illness before the match.
“His health decisions were made by the managers of the entire team,” he said.
“And this was about the morale of the whole team, so we kept it within the team.”
Despite losing the first match of the tournament in the semi-finals, Pakistani greats celebrated the team’s achievement in the semi-finals.
“You guys didn’t win the World Cup, they won the hearts of all Pakistanis,” said former high-speed bowler Waqar Younis.
“I couldn’t ask for more. You gave your best. I’m very proud.”
