During the ongoing qualifier between Multan Sultans and Lahore Qalandars in the ongoing season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Sultans Captain Mohammad Rizwan completed 500 runs.

During the tournament, the batter has accumulated 500 runs in a total of 11 innings.

Moreover, Rizwan has scored five hundred runs in three consecutive editions of the PSL, becoming the first player to score five hundred runs in three back-to-back editions of the PSL.

Rizwan first scored 500 runs in PSL season 6 and then 546 runs in PSL season 7.

Earlier, in what was arguably one of the most titillating matches of the tournament, between Karachi Kings and the Sultans, Rizwan scored 110 runs off 64 balls after a sensational display of batting.

The Sultans captain, who was the opening batter in the game, hit 10 boundaries and four maximums and stayed planted on the pitch throughout the game.

Since his debut in PSL in 2016, Rizwan has played in 70 matches, accumulating 1,962 runs in 59 innings. He has hit one century (during the ongoing season) and 16 fifties.

Rizwan also has 178 fours and 45 sixes to his name.
