Irfan Pathan Had An Epic Reply To The Troller Who Said He Was Dropped For His Poor Bowling

Irfan Pathan is undoubtedly one of the finest swing bowlers that India has ever produced and what made him more valuable was his ability to score runs when the team needed it the most. While Irfan can easily be called one of the best all-rounders who have ever played for the Indian team, his swing bowling made his fans compare him to legendary Indian cricketer Kapil Dev. Despite the fact that Irfan Pathan took retirement earlier this year, many cricket fans are of the opinion that he should have got more chances and should have played for India for some more time.

Irfan debuted in the year 2003 and represented India in 120 ODIs, 29 test matches and 24 T20Is. His last test match was against a strong South African side in which he scored 21 and 43 in both the innings. In this test match, Irfan batted at number seven and was not-out in both the innings. The last T20I Irfan played against Australia and in that match, he was the top scorer with 31 runs while in his last ODI that he played against Sri Lanka, Irfan Pathan scored 29 runs not-out.

These stats were displayed in a tweet which was supposedly made by a fan of Irfan who was not happy with the cricketer not playing anymore and had posted a broken heart emoji. In response, the left-handed bowler supported what fan said as he meant to say that it hurts when you score 63 runs in a test match and remain not-out against a bowling attack which had good bowlers like Steyn and Morkel and then it turns out to be your last test match.

Here is what Irfan tweeted: “If you are playing as an all rounder n score 63 not out in a test match against the likes of Steyn n Morkel thn it would turn out to be your last game…”

Another online user opined that Irfan Pathan was dropped because of his disappointing bowling performance as he was not able to take a single wicket in that match.

The tweet read, “But You Were Wicketless In That Test. I Think Your Bowling Is Reason Of You Getting Dropped Not Your Batting.”

Irfan also responded by asking the user whether he was the only one who didn’t get a wicket in that match and at the same time, he didn’t fail to remind that in the test match prior one test match to this one, he won the Man of the Match award. He further shut down the troll by saying that he must not be knowing it because he was not born by that time.

Irfan tweeted, “Was I the only one who was wicketless in that game? N by the way had a man of the match award in a test match one match prior to this one. Probably u weren’t born that time so u won’t know”.

We would have loved to see more of Irfan Pathan but we must say that he is still hitting sixes on the pitch of Twitter!
