Rizwan, who has pulled out many stunning catches last year, added another to his name during an exciting fourth day in Kingston, with the West Indies finally winning the match with just one wicket remaining.
After bowling out Pakistan for 203 and needing 168 runs to win, West Indies had lost their top eight on 142, but Kemar Roach, their number 9, continued to fight valiantly to keep them in the game. Jomel Warrican, at 10, had given him plenty of support getting their team back into the chase before Hasan Ali decided to try Warrican with a bouncer in the 53rd over, he tried to hook a short one from the outside, but eventually got a healthy top edge that flew to fine leg.
Four players converged when the ball went high in the air, including Rizwan, who pushed himself for the grab. The fine-leg fielder could only watch as Rizwan dived and picked up the ball with both hands to complete the catch. It was an extremely crucial wicket in the context of the game, with only No.11 Jayden Seales to follow, and 17 runs still needed for a West Indies win.
In the end, Roach took them home and finished a thrilling test that the West Indies won 1-0 in the two-match series.
