Pathan Sent Packing

Irfan Pathan, has been given an air-ticket back home and literally sent packing to regain his lost form by playing in the Ranji Trophy matches. The fact is he is the only Indian player to have scored a century in the ongoing series in South Africa. In Vengsarkar's words-"He is in the team as a bowler who can bat a bit, not as a batsman who can bowl a bit."

So Pathan has about 4 months in which he has to master his reverse swing and wicket taking ability, to play for India in the World Cup in the Caribbean.

When I am writing this Sreesanth is being belted across the park in Durban and Zaheer has taken two wickets in the second test. Let us see what happens. Best of luck Pathan.
