Irfan Pathan proposes a farewell match between the retired players and the current Indian team

Former swingy left-arm pacer of Indian cricket team on Saturday suggested a charity cum farewell cricket match between former legendary Indian players and the current team. After hearing the news, fans became very enthusiastic that they can enjoy their nostalgia through this game, where there will be an interesting combination of old and new at the same time. Officials are trying to put some light on this unique decision by Pathan.

Irfan Pathan has also picked a retired playing XI for this match. Though it is not officially confirmed, the playing XI is expected to be like this: Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Irfan Pathan, Ajit Agarkar, Zaheer Khan, and Pragyan Ojha. You can expect that the current Indian team will surely have a tough fight.

“Many people are talking about a farewell game for retired players who didn’t get a proper send-off from the game. How about a charity cum farewell game from a team consisting of retired players vs the current Indian team,” Pathan tweeted.

After retiring Dhoni on August 15, every cricket fan wants a farewell match for him. Not only Dhoni but also most of the players who have before him did not get a proper send-off from the game. Regarding this matter of Dhoni, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren had urged the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to host a farewell match for former skipper Dhoni.

Irfan Pathan also added that BCCI should allow the retired players from India to feature in foreign T-20 leagues, such as Big Bash or CPL. This is also good thinking from the former pacer.

Irfan Pathan was also retired from all formats of cricket in earlier January 2020. He was an exceptional all-rounder who was mainly famous for his swingy bowling. He had an important role in the 2007 T20 World Cup. He is one of the three bowlers who has a Test match hat-trick for India and he was the first in the world to claim it in the first over. He was a fine batsman too. He ended his international career after scoring 2,821 runs with a one century and 11 half-centuries.
