Well, Irfan Pathan last played for India in October 2012, and even though he is not a part of team at present, but he will always remain a great player for his fans, especially after what he said at an event recently.
Pathan was in Nagpur attending an event where he shared an anecdote which dates back to his tour of Pakistan. Irfan Pathan said that once he was asked by a young Pakistani woman as to why he did not play for Pakistani despite being a Muslim.
Well, what do you think he answered? Pathan, who was touring Pakistan as a part of Team India, said, ‘It is a matter of pride for me to play for India’.
He said that this was the moment that motivated him to keep playing better. Pathan played 24 T20Is, 29 Tests and 120 ODIs. He picked up 301 wickets and has scored over 1800 runs.
We wish all the luck for your future, Irfan.
