Watch: Mohd Rizwan engage in heated exchange with Marco Jansen during Pakistan vs South Africa match: Things got a bit spiced up during the ongoing Pakistan vs South Africa contest at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai when Pakistan’s wicketkeeper batter Mohd Rizwan came face to face with fiery Protea pacer Marco Jansen. The two had a verbal exchange early in the innings, a glimpse of which is shared below in this article.
After sending both the Pakistani openers packing quite early in the innings, South Africa pacer Marco Jansen was on fire as he nearly grabbed another scalp of Mohd Rizwan, who had just arrived in the crease.
The very first delivery faced by Mohd Rizwan was an impressively disguised slower one from Marco Jansen which deceived the batter. Rizwan failed to recognise the slower delivery and tried to defend it, however, the ball got chipped in the air towards the right of the bowler. Jansen dived towards his right to catch the ball, but couldn’t hold onto it and Mohd Rizwan got a lifeline in the very first delivery.

In the next delivery, which was directed full outside the off stump, Rizwan was ready to pounce on it. The delivery took the leading edge of Rizwan’s blade and flew to the third man area.
Rizwan’s early survival and then a lucky boundary off the leading edge didn’t please Marco Jansen who hurled a few words towards the batter as he returned to his bowling mark for the final delivery of the over. Rizwan too couldn’t hold himself and took part in the heated exchange with Jansen. The two even had a couple of stares before it came to the verbal altercations.
Marco Jansen delivered a good length delivery to end his eventful over. Rizwan shouldered his arms as the delivery nipped back in a little bit. As the delivery was completed, the pacer was again seen having a go at the batter, who then welcomed the bowler with his arms wide open.
The incident that began with a fierce exchange ended with some laughter as Rizwan responded with a big smile and even the umpire couldn’t hold himself taking a fist bump with Mohd Rizwan after completion of the over.
