Pakistan's Mohammad Rizwan bats during the Cricket Twenty20 World Cup semi-final match between Pakistan and Australia in Dubai, UAE, Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021.

In-form Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan became the first batter to score 1000 runs in T20I in a calendar year as the wicket-keeper batsman slammed a half-century against Australia in T20 World Cup's Semifinal 2 on Thursday.

Rizwan reached the unprecedented 1000-run milestone in the 12th over as he shot Oz spinner Adam Zampa for a six.

At the time of writing this report, the opener fell after scoring a well-crafted 67; allowing Pakistan to put 143 runs on the board in 17.2 overs.

Interestingly, Rizwan was uncertain for the game earlier in the afternoon after it was reported that 29-year-old Pakistan player was down with mild flu.
