    IPL Debut 2008

    A swing bowler and a handy batsman who can fit into a variety of roles, the younger of the Pathan brothers – Irfan - is a gift to any captain or coach. Primarily considered a lower-order batsman, coaches have even used him at the top of the line-up and as a pinch-hitter. His rapid rise to the top and his consistent contributions with bat and ball in the early part of his career led to a lot of comparisons. However, excessive pressure, an unclear role within the team and too many changes to his bowling action resulted in the Baroda all-rounder losing his place in the national side. Injuries only added to his woes. However, after recovering, he was back in the thick of things and was called up to the national side in December 2011. He was with Kings XI Punjab during the first three seasons of the IPL and was the team’s leading wicket-taker at one point. The left-arm pacer has since added a few more variations to his armoury. He turned out for the Delhi Daredevils in IPL 2012 and 2013, and played for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2014. In the 2015 season of IPL, Irfan Pathan was a part of the Chennai Super Kings squad, but did not get a chance to take the field. He will represent the Rising Pune Supergiants in VIVO IPL 2016. However, after recovering, he was back in the thick of things and was called up to the national side in December 2011.
