Irfan Pathan names his favourite moment of Indian cricket in 2019
Fast bowler Irfan Pathan has been an important part of Indian cricket history. He went on to pick his favourite moment of Indian cricket in this year. According to him, India’s Test series win against Australia under Virat Kohli’s leadership is his best memory in 2019.
Virat Kohli & Co scripted history by clinching a Test series in Australia for the first time since 1947 as India beat Australia by 2-1 to win the four-match Test series. India won the first Test match by 31 runs in Adelaide and lost the second one in Perth by 146 runs in December last year.
However, the visitors made a strong statement in the third Test as they won by eight wickets. The fourth and the final Test concluded in a draw in Sydney as eventually, India clinched the historic Test series in Australia.
“It’s been a very good year for Indian cricket but being a Test cricketer, my dream always was to beat Australia in Australia but I was not able to achieve that in my career. I’m so glad that this Indian team under Virat’s (Kohli) leadership has beaten Australia for the first time in their favourite and which is my favourite moment of Indian cricket in 2019,” the left-arm pacer Irfan Pathan added.
“This year we saw India’s fast bowlers bowl beautifully for the country and it’s been one of the best fast bowling line-ups that we have seen. We saw the intent with which they bowled, they came in, bowled hard-swinging deliveries, new or old ball it didn’t matter. I have really seen the growth of Indian cricket especially in terms of fast bowling which has been the highlight for me this year,” Irfan Pathan was quoted as saying by Times of India
