Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Rizwan won hearts on social media after he performed namaz in the middle of the field during the innings break on Sunday as India and Pakistan clashed in their T20 World Cup opener in Dubai.

A video of the wicketkeeper-batsman praying during a break in the Indian innings has been making rounds on social media.

Fans in Pakistan were in awe of the opener as he set everything aside to offer his prayers before Pakistan began their chase.

Pakistan on Sunday claimed its first T20 World Cup victory against India after defeating it by 10 wickets.

India had set up a 152-run target for Pakistan after Babar Azam had decided to field first.

Pakistan openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan established a firm partnership throughout the second innings as they smoothly chased the target to clinch a victory for team green.

In the first innings, the Men in Green claimed their seventh wicket sending off Hardik Pandya and restricting the arch-rivals for 151 runs.

In a stunning display, Shaheen Afridi sent Virat Kohli, who took charge of India's resurgence, off for 57 runs in turn claiming the sixth and crucial wicket for Pakistan.
