AB de Villiers backs this Pakistani batsman while calling him a "fighter"

AB de Villiers, who is the former batsman of the South African cricket team, is quite confident about Mohammad Rizwan and said he will shine at the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup in India as he is a "fighter" and "fantastic player" who thrives in pressure situations.
De Villiers had said that Rizwan had been slightly inconsistent at the number four spot and would like to see more from him. Despite this small criticism, the Proteas legend is backing the 31-year-old from Peshawar to light up the World Cup.
In a YouTube video, De Villiers said, "He is a fighter and a fantastic player under pressure, so I have no doubt he will come through."
Rizwan recently batted as a substitute for Sarfaraz Ahmed during the second Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo and made 50 not out. Subsequently, he played in the three-match ODI series against Afghanistan and scored 90 runs, which included a top score of 67 at an average of 30.
His most recent assignment was the Asia Cup, where he scored 195 runs in five games, which included two fifties, at an average of 97.50.
