Former Team India all-rounder Irfan Pathan gave a befitting reply to a fan who blamed former Indian captain MS Dhoni for Pathan’s exclusion from the Indian team during his playing days.
Currently Irfan Pathan is playing for Bhilwara Kings team in the second season of Legends League Cricket (LLC). He is the captain of the team and so far he has done very well not only with the ball but also with the bat. With this, a fan has expressed his disappointment on not seeing the all-rounder playing for India after the age of 29 on his Twitter account.
A fan tweeted, “Every time i see Irfan Pathan in these leagues, i curse MS & his management even more. I can’t believe, he played last white ball game at the age of just 29. Perfect no. 7, any team would die for. But India played Ravindra Jadeja, even Stuart Binny.”
In reply to which, Irfan Pathan wrote, “Don’t blame any one, Thank you for the love.”
