IND vs ENG: Irfan Pathan vents out furstration, calls out cricketer for not playing domestic cricket – India Today


New Delhi,UPDATED: Feb 10, 2024 16:09 IST

Former India cricketer Irfan Pathan has posted a cryptic tweet on Saturday, 10 February. In the tweet, Pathan hit out against an India player, currently out of the national team for not spending enough time in domestic cricket. The former all-rounder did not name the player in his tweet but made some scathing comments.

Fans speculated in the Twitter thread that the player could be Ishan Kishan, who is currently out of the Indian team. Kishan had requested for personal leave from the South Africa Test series in December/January and has been away ever since. The player did not check into the National Cricket Academy, nor did he contact his state association for a spot in the ongoing Ranji Trophy.

“Finding it perplexing how someone can be fit enough to practice but not play domestic cricket. How does this even make sense?” Irfan Pathan said on Twitter.

Ishan Kishan: A timeline after South Africa Tests

India head coach Rahul Dravid spoke about Kishan during the England Test series and told the media that Kishan had to play some form of cricket before getting back into the Indian team. Kishan, on the other hand, has been active through his social media channels and has posted videos of him working out and enjoying some downtime. Pathan’s tweet indicates that he might have been furious at that, given many former cricketers consider Ishan Kishan an important cog in the wheel in at least two formats of the game.

Kishan was almost assured of being a mainstay in the T20I line-up for India, but the recent developments have put a question mark on that as well. The Indian team has moved on from KL Rahul in the T20I format and have tried out Jitesh Sharma in the wicketkeeping spot ahead of the World Cup.

Kishan will have to prove himself in the Indian Premier League if the batter wants to return to the Indian team. Kishan plays for Mumbai Indians in the tournament, the franchise of India captain Rohit Sharma.

Several fans voiced their discontent about the same in the same Twitter thread and said that they were ready to be disappointed with the board’s methods of dealing with Kishan in the near future.

At the moment. KS Bharat is keeping for India in the Test series, while Dhruv Jurel has been named as his back-up in the squad.
