A Indian doctor who helped in restoring Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Rizwan to his feet the day before his T20 World Cup semi-final against Australia in Dubai has praised the wicketkeeper batters’ indomitable spirit and will as he battled a serious chest infection in the ICU.
Rizwan’s prompt recovery shocked specialist Pulmonologist at Medeor Hospital, Saheer Sainalabdeen, who treated the cricketer. Mujhe Khelna Hain, Rizwan told the doctors who treated him in the ICU that he wanted to play and be with his country in the knockout match, and he overcame all odds to score 67 off 52 balls in the knockout match against Australia by five wickets. He was a strong, determined, and optimistic man.
His pain at the time of admission was 1020-nesses, and the medical staff immediately stabilized him and prescribed him with symptomatic drugs. We sent him for a thorough examination to assess his condition, according to Saheer. The results indicated that he had a serious laryngeal infection that resulted in an esophageal spasm and bronchospasm.
According to Saheer, episophageal spasms can be like a sudden and intense chest pain that can last for as long as a few minutes to hours. Rizwan was unable to cope with the physical demands posed by his illness. Recovery and gaining fitness before the semifinal seemed unrealistic. Anyone would have needed 5-7 days to recover, according to Saheer.Despite this, the cricketer was determined and showed a great deal of determination.
According to the doctor, Rizwan’s only thoughts were about the semi-finals. Two nights in the ICU, he tolerated well and noticed significant improvement. Several factors may have contributed to his faster recovery, according to the doctor.Rizwan was determined, kind, and optimistic.In his recovery, his physical appearance and endurance as a sportman had been crucial.According to Saheer, Rizwan was in the ICU for 35 hours.
But it was the first time a player with a serious infection of this magnitude recovered so quickly.When Rizwan reached the big sixties, we all felt pampered. He has regained a sense of purpose since his illness. Rizwan’s hard work, dedication, and determination are all to be lauded, Saheer said.
