Rising Pune Supergiants pace bowler Irfan Pathan seemed to be in a very good mood when he replied to a fan who had an advice for him on Twitter.

The Rising Pune Supergiants won their 4th match of the season last night in a rain affected match at Vizag and now have only one more match remaining to be played in this year’s edition. RPS is already out of contention for the playoffs and have their last match on Saturday against the Kings XI Punjab.

Having a good couple of days gap in between made the junior Pathan feel like watching a movie taking a day off. He took to twitter to ask his fans for the suggestions on which movie should he go for. Surprisingly, a fan wasn’t very impressed with Irfan Pathan’s idea of watching the movie in the free time. He replied asking Pathan to spend his money on feeding the poor instead of going for a movie.

A witty and kind-hearted Irfan did not take the reply in a wrong way and certainly did not look offended. He was quick to tweet back saying he will feed the poor and then go for the movie. The best part about his wits was that neither did he sound very offensive to his fan, nor did he totally rule out his suggestion.

But more than anything else, he surely did give the fan a valid reply. His fan got back to him praising him as a good man and said he would hope for the all-rounder to make a comeback in the national team.

Irfan Pathan has played 3 matches in the season so far for the Rising Pune Supergiants. There was an uproar among the cricket pundits and the fans at his exclusion from the team for the major part of the season. Rising Pune Supergiants are among the bottom two in the points table and are sure to finish in the bottom two places by the end of the main league stage.
