The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) issued a statement regarding Mohammad Rizwan’s injury,saying that it is not a serious one. Mohammad Rizwan was feeling pain in his back and was rested as a precaution in the second innings.

In the second T20 match played against New Zealand, Mohammad Rizwan could not maintain his balance while sweeping and did not keep wickets due to back pain. Wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Haris performed the wicket-keeping duties in his place.
