Irfan has found it hard to make a comeback into the Indian cricket team since his last outing on October 2, 2012, in a T20 match. The 32-year-old was part of MS Dhoni’s Rising Pune Supergiants in the last edition of the Indian Premier League. However, he failed to make the starting eleven in most matches.
Despite being on the sidelines for a very long time, Irfan still hopes to wear the Indian colours soon. Irfan has played 29 Tests, 120 ODIs and T20Is for Team India. At a point of time, Irfan Pathan was among the best all rounders in team India but he failed to survive in the raising competition for their places in team India.
However, he is still working hard for a comeback and will again feature in the upcoming season of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017.
The left-arm pacer is the only player in international cricket to claim a first-over hat-trick. He achieved this feat against Pakistan at Karachi in 2006. Incredibly, Irfan pulled this off in the first three balls of the Test, which India then went on to lose.
Also, we congratulate the couple on the arrival of the family member and welcomes the couple into the Parents club. Wishing them a happy parenting life ahead.
