Twitter users have lauded sports commentator, Zainab Abbas, for respecting Pakistani cricketer Muhammad Rizwan during his interview at a dinner hosted by PCB.
The viral pictures show Zainab Abbas moving behind Rizwan as he answered her questions during the ceremony. Rizwan was hesitant to directly face Zainab Abbas while talking to her and seemed a bit uncomfortable. Observing his hesitancy, Abbas moved to the backside.
While appreciating her, netizens called her a ‘true professional’ for understanding and adjusting herself to ease Rizwan.
A few days ago, Muhammad Rizwan had revealed why he never clicks a picture with females. He was asked why he is so shy being around the women. To which the batter replied, “It is not about being shy but some things are personal and every player has their personal [reasons].”
He said he respects women a lot and does not think of himself as worthy of being photographed with “mothers” and “sisters”. “The worth of these women is very high to me and I wish that mothers and sisters who are my fans would not be offended by this,” Rizwan said.
Rizwan gifts Quran to Mathew Hayden
Muhammad Rizwan seems to have a religious inclination. Earlier, he had gifted an English translation of the Holy Quran to the temporary coach Matthew Hayden.
Hayden revealed in his interview that he was curious about Islam and Rizwan gifted him the Holy Quran in English translation. “It was Rizzy (Mohammad Rizwan) and I have to say it was a beautiful moment I will never forget. I am curious about Islam even though I am a Christian. One follows Christ and the other Muhammad and in a sense never shall meet but he presented me with an English version of the Quran. We sat on the floor for half an hour and talked through it. I am reading a bit of it each day. Rizzy is one of my favorite individuals, a champion human being,” Hayden said.
