Irfan’s career in brief

When Irfan made his debut, he was being seen as an answer to India’s quest of finding a genuine all-rounder. He took rapid strides for the Men in Blue and went on to play all three formats. Irfan also went on to become the Player of the Match in the final of the 2007 T20 World Cup in South Africa. He picked wickets at crucial phases against Pakistan and helped India become the champions of the firsts season.

The now 35-year-old went on to play 29 Tests, 120 ODIs and 24 T20Is for his nation. In February 2019, he played his last competitive match in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. When he called it quits, he said that getting Matthew Hayden as his first wicket is one of his most memorable moments.

Pathan has also helped Jammu and Kashmir cricket grow leaps and bounds. He took charge of the team as a player-cum-mentor in the 2018-19 season. Though it was his last season in first-class cricket, he carried on being the mentor to his team. Irfan also plies his trade as a commentator in several series.
