“So, we shouldn’t anticipate Rizvi to replicate exactly what Rayudu has been doing for so many years. However, we can certainly begin nurturing his talent, as he possesses a lot of natural ability. It’s thrilling to see how far he can progress.”

“I think he’ll most likely bat in the middle order. He is clearly a natural at hitting the ball. I only see him for the first time yesterday (Sunday), He looks like a very talented young prospect.’’

‘’So, I’m excited to personally work with him and assist in enhancing his game, not only for this tournament but also for the years ahead. While we want him to excel in this IPL, there are many more years moving forward in his career. One thing, we want him to do well in this IPL, but there’s many more years left in his career.”

Rizvi, known for his explosive batting in the middle order, is often called a right-handed version of Suresh Raina. He began his cricket journey in 2011 at the Gandhibagh Academy in Meerut and also played for India at the Under-19 level and debuted in the Ranji Trophy at the age of 16 in 2020, although he didn’t have many opportunities to play.

In the UPT20 league last year, Rizvi smashed 455 runs in 10 matches at an average of over 50. Throughout the tournament, he also hammered two centuries and a half-century, grabbing everyone’s attention.

Rizvi made his first-class debut representing Uttar Pradesh in January 2020 at the age of 16, in the 2019-20 Ranji Trophy. He then made his List A debut in December 2021 for Uttar Pradesh in the 2021-22 Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Rizvi said to ESPN, “People compare me with Raina because of the way I play,” Rizvi says. “If people call me a right-handed Raina then I’ll aim to do what he did for CSK. Even I love fielding like him. I’ll give it my everything.”
