The bidding war for Rizvi was intense, with multiple franchises, including CSK and Gujarat Titans, actively buying for the uncapped Indian batter. The bidding quickly escalated, reaching the 1 crore mark as CSK and Gujarat Titans engaged in a back-and-forth battle. Although it seemed that CSK had sealed the deal at Rs 7.60 crore, the Delhi Capitals joined the fray with a bid of Rs 7.80 crore. However, CSK ultimately clinched the bidding war with a final bid of Rs 8.40 crore.

The 20-year-old Rizvi gained attention during the UP T20 League, where he emerged as the highest run-scorer of the tournament, amassing 455 runs in nine innings. Known for his powerful hitting, Rizvi smashed the most sixes for his team, the Kanpur Superstars, in the league. His outstanding performance included two centuries, and he contributed significantly by scoring 84 runs from 50 balls in the final leading UP to victory in the tournament.

Rizvi’s impressive batting skills earned him trial opportunities with three IPL franchises, including the Punjab Kings. Unfortunately, due to prior commitments with the Under-23 squad of Uttar Pradesh, Rizvi had to forego the trials. However, he made a notable debut with the Under-23 team showcasing his potential by hammering 91 runs off 65 deliveries in a one-day match against Rajasthan.
