Pakistan team management is contemplating changes in the batting order, positioning Mohammad Rizwan at number four, however, captain Babar Azam is against the proposed change.

In the wake of the disheartening loss to New Zealand, the Pakistan team management is exploring options to revamp the batting order.

With uncertainty surrounding Rizwan’s availability due to injury, Usman Khan and Fakhar Zaman emerge as potential candidates for the number three spot.

Fakhar Zaman has yet to feature in the ongoing series, while Usman Khan has managed 12 runs across two innings, batting at number four.

While awaiting scan results to determine Rizwan’s fitness, the management deliberates on potential positional adjustments.


Despite the prospect of Rizwan’s return, questions arise regarding his optimal batting position given his recent form. The management is considering to reposition him at number four in the batting order.

The wicketkeeper batter has faced massive criticism in recent times for his slow batting in the powerplay, taking too many balls and leaving too much to achieve for the lower-order batters.

However, Babar Azam is completely behind Rizwan, voicing his dissent to management’s proposed change. Babar is a strong advocate of Rizwan to maintain his position at the top of the order.

Rizwan himself expressed reservations about the proposed change, considering his strong track record as a top-order batsman in T20Is.
