Rizwan had become the most successful Pakistani batsman in any single tournament of T20. He has bagged the record of 20 dismissals behind the wickets in PSL 6.

Rizwan is also the first Pakistani wicket-keeper batsman to score 1000 T20 runs in a calendar year. As a skipper, the 29-year-old Rizwan led Multan Sultans to the maiden victory of the Pakistan Super League.
