Muhammad Rizwan Expresses Solidarity With Palestine, Dedicates Match-Winning Ton To 'Brothers And Sisters In Gaza'
Rizwan's Gaza tweet drew varied comments on social media. Here are some of the reactions.
Mohammed Rizwan, Pakistan's wicket-keeper batsman, dedicated his team's World Cup record-breaking performance against Sri Lanka to the "brothers and sisters in Gaza."
Following an incredible performance in which he amassed an undefeated century, Rizwan paid praise.
Meanwhile, young Abdullah Shafique achieved his first-ever ODI century, helping Pakistan set a new world record on Tuesday in Hyderabad when they chased 345 against Sri Lanka.
How will a century or a win help them in Gaza? Instead, you and entire Pak team should donate all kinds of earnings, whether it's match fees, awards, endorsements, etc., from the World Cup to Palestinians. That would be genuine assistance. Otherwise this tweet is just hogwash.— THE SKIN DOCTOR (@theskindoctor13) October 11, 2023
Rizwan posted on his now-defunct Twitter account, X, saying, "This was for our brothers and sisters in Gaza." Glad to have helped in the victory. Kudos to Hassan Ali and Abdullah Shafique in particular for making things easy.

Recent clashes between Israel and Hamas militants have suddenly and dramatically increased, with sad results for both sides. Over 900 people have been confirmed dead in the shocking attack that Hamas militants carried out on Israel this past weekend.
Israel launched a fierce onslaught in retaliation, essentially declaring war on the assailants.
