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.

Sussex are currently at the second last position in Division 2 with 31 points from four matches, 42 points behind table-toppers Nottinghamshire.
