QuestionApart from the Indian team, you and Yusuf Pathan have played together for many different teams. At the same time, in IPL, both of you brothers play for different teams, but when is the fun when both brothers play together or against each other?
Irfan Pathan– It’s always better to play together…especially as a bowler, that’s what I would like. Actually, both the brothers played franchise cricket for so many years, but the dream of playing together was not fulfilled, but if both brothers are playing in the Legends League, it is a lot of fun.
QuestionYusuf Pathan is a very aggressive player, so if you play with him, do you try to play like him or play your game?
Irfan PathanWhen I play together, I try to play my game. Although people think that Yusuf Pathan can just bat aggressively, but he is a very intelligent cricketer. Apart from winning the T20 World Cup, he has won many domestic tournaments including IPL 3 times. So they know when and how to play. For example, today he did not take much risk against Muralitharan and Harbhajan Singh, while playing big shots against the rest of the bowlers.
QuestionThere are constant questions being raised on the team that has been selected for the T20 World Cup, many former veteran players have questioned the team selection. What do you think this team is perfect and can win the World Cup?
Irfan Pathan– Look, there will always be someone or the other. In such a situation, we pray that the players who have been selected should perform better. We want this team to win the World Cup.
