As they say its all in the family, this time it was a dream come true for Mehmood Khan Pathan. Yes both his son playing for the nation and in the cracking form that they snatched victory from the jaws of the Lankan’s was commendable.
It was Yusuf who started off with his exploits in the bowling.
And while he came to the crease to bat, there was enough pressure on him. Attack is the best thing he knows as he smacked Bhandara all over the park. At the other end, he was joined by his younger brother Irfan. Young Pathan justified the tag of All-rounder given to him. The Pathan brothers applied themselves and played sensibly. It was Yusuf who kick started while Irfan was rotating the strike. And in the concluding overs, it was Irfan who started to demolish the Lankan’s. The duo clobbered the Lankan’s attack and helped
Suddenly with the Pathan Bros striking together, we realized that
I (Wags) have the privilege of meeting the Pathan brothers. It was in March 2004, while Irfan had just returned from his Down under and
I have treasured the Cricket Ball with Irfan Pathan’ signature with me.
Kudos to the rising star Yusuf Pathan who was given the man of the match award and the Duo have loads of opportunities to exhibit their exploits both with the bat and ball.

The Prince and the Sultan together butchered the Lankans in a deadly style, allowing the men in blue to register their eighth straight win.
Yuvi has once again shown the power of his willow which he had during ODI series with
For Sultan of Multan- Viru, the only way to play game is Attack.
Poor Ajanta Mendis was hit all over the park and he would have reached Ellora as a result..
Both of them were in immaculate touch and one record after the other. Yuvi became the first batsman to score a century in Srilanka after 10 years, some moments, Viru became the second one.
Every cricket fan in India should remember that fantastic moment when Yuvi punched his fist in air and signaled toward Sachin in Pavilion balcony indicating “This one is for you buddy who’ve been victim of wrong LBW decisions.”
It’s always said before start of match that on paper India’s batting is strongest in world, but with their running Juggernaut it seems justifying.
The present Indian side is properly balanced as we have some great playing guns in the side with the likes of explosive batsman in Viru, Yuvi, Gambhir, Dhoni, Raina, Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan and of course the Master Blaster.
With the men in blue in supreme touch, and series win in their kitty, eying the top position in the ICC ranking is not far away. It’s a healthy competition amongst three teams India, South Africa and Australia.
