A few months back the former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan had announced his retirement from international cricket bringing an end to his glorious career. Irfan is one of the finest all-rounders India has produced. All thanks to his mesmerizing bowling spells that not just he became a World T20 champion but also went on to become a cult hero for the youngsters.
Irfan Pathan contributed a lot to Indian cricket, however, he didn’t get many opportunities because of injuries and form issues, especially after the Greg Chappell era. He played his last match in 2012 for India in a T20I against South Africa.
