Ramiz Raja Advocates for the Return of Pakistan’s Most Prosperous T20 Opening Pair

Pakistan’s cricket team has recently experimented with new opening pair combinations in T20 cricket, yielding mixed results. With the T20I World Cup looming in June, veteran commentator Ramiz Raja strongly advocates for retaining Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan as the opening duo.

Former PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja has consistently championed the partnership between Babar and Rizwan at the top of the order. He argues that Rizwan’s effectiveness is maximized as an opener and moving him down the order would diminish his impact. “Mohammad Rizwan’s impressive T20I record and his synergy with Babar Azam make them a formidable pair. Keeping them together at the top is crucial; Rizwan wouldn’t be as influential at number four,” remarked Raja.

In January, Pakistan experimented with various combinations, including Saim Ayub and Mohammad Rizwan, with Babar Azam pushed down the order. They also tested Haseebullah Khan alongside Rizwan in the final T20I against New Zealand.

The debate surrounding the opening pair has intensified since the T20I series in January. Pakistan’s upcoming matches against New Zealand, England, and Ireland are expected to witness further experimentation at the top order.

However, the team has faced challenges since altering the opening combination, particularly with Babar Azam’s shift to the one-down position. With the series against New Zealand commencing tomorrow, Pakistan will continue to explore different combinations to determine the most effective opening pair for future matches.
