In an interview on YouTube, shared from the official handle of Pakistan Cricket, the Pakistan wicketkeeper revealed that it was a medicated pillow that he used in order to give comfort to his neck while sleeping. “On the subject of the pillow, it’s a medicated pillow which I use because as you know, being a wicketkeeper, there’s always a problem in the neck region. Due to constantly wearing a helmet while keeping or batting, sometimes the neck muscles become tight or rigid,” said Rizwan in a 57-second video clip shared by PCB.

Recently, the 29-year-old Rizwan skipped the team’s training session in Mirpur on Monday as he recovers from a chest infection that required hospitalization before their T20 World Cup semifinal against Australia.

An Indian doctor, who helped in getting Rizwan back on his feet a day before the last-four clash in Dubai, recently praised the opener’s indomitable spirit and courage as he battled a severe chest infection on an ICU bed.

Rizwan, now getting ready for a three-match T20I series against Bangladesh, said he will resume training from Tuesday.

“I am fine now I had some breathing problem in Dubai but now I am fine and hopefully I will start training from tomorrow. The doctors and physio prescribed some rest and I have completed it,” he was quoted as saying by ‘Cricbuzz’.

Rizwan was not present during Pakistan team’s opening day training session at the Sher-e-Bangla National Academy premises. The series begins on Friday and will be followed by a two-match Test rubber.

In the T20 World Cup semifinal against Australia, the Pakistan opener overcame all odds to score 67 off 52 balls but his team still lost the match.
