Watch: Pakistan Star Mohammad Rizwan Takes A Screamer At First Slip In County Championship

County Championship: While playing for Sussex, Pakistan star Mohammad Rizwan took an absolute blinder at first slip against Durham.

Mohammad Rizwan did it all against Durham while playing for Sussex in the ongoing County Championship Division 2. The Pakistan wicketkeeper first played a knock of 79 in the first innings and then bowled a couple of overs as well for Sussex. To cap it all off, the 29-year-old took a stunning catch in Durham’s second innings and this effort helped the side dismiss David Bedingham.On the third delivery of the 103rd over, Bedingham played a forward defence off the bowling of Delray Rawlins, but the ball managed to catch an outside edge and hit the wicketkeeper’s pads and popped up in the air.

Standing at first slip, Rizwan then dived towards his right and he held onto the ball to take a stunning catch.

In the second innings, Rizwan bowled a couple of overs as well. Bowling medium pace, he conceded just five runs and, in the end, the match between Durham and Sussex ended in a draw. In the game, Durham posted just 223 batting first as Aaron Beard and Tom Clark returned with three wickets each for Sussex Cheteshwar Pujara then scored 203 as Sussex posted 238, gaining a lead of 315 runs. This was Pujara’s third consecutive ton in the ongoing County Championship.

Durham openers Alex Lees and Sean Dickson then scored centuries in the second innings and Durham declared their innings at 364/3. In the end, the match ended in a draw. Sussex are currently at the second last position in Division 2 with 31 points from four matches, 42 points behind table-toppers Nottinghamshire.

Yet strangely the place did not seem crowded. I’m not sure if it was the sheer size of the place, or whether the masses congregated in one area and didn’t venture far from the main church, but I didn’t feel overwhelmed by tourists in the monastery.

Headed over Lions Bridge and made our way to the Sofia Synagogue, then sheltered in the Central Market Hall until the recurrent (but short-lived) mid-afternoon rain passed.

Feeling refreshed after an espresso, we walked a short distance to the small but welcoming Banya Bashi Mosque, then descended into the ancient Serdica complex.

We were exhausted after a long day of travel, so we headed back to the hotel and crashed.

I had low expectations about Sofia as a city, but after the walking tour I absolutely loved the place. This was an easy city to navigate, and it was a beautiful city – despite its ugly, staunch and stolid communist-built surrounds. Sofia has a very average facade as you enter the city, but once you lose yourself in the old town area, everything changes.

Clothes can transform your mood and confidence. Fashion moves so quickly that, unless you have a strong point of view, you can lose integrity. I like to be real. I don’t like things to be staged or fussy. I think I’d go mad if I didn’t have a place to escape to. You have to stay true to your heritage, that’s what your brand is about.
