Irfan Pathan requests for a charity game consisting of retired players
Former Indian left-arm all-rounder Irfan Pathan has come up with a new idea of having a charity come farewell game, with the former payers who didn’t have a farewell game.
The recent hot news around the Indian cricket team was the retirement of MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina. Both players announced their retirement, back to back on same day. The two players bid farewell to the game in an unexpected way and the farewell game for both is unlikely up to now.
Not only them, but many Indian players like Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Gautam Gambhir also didn’t get a farewell game when they called off their career. This is been a black mark around the team as well as big disappointment for the fans. That’s been a talk in the recent years.
Irfan Pathan suggests a charity game
Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan made a interesting suggestion regarding the above matter. The former all-rounder suggested to conduct a charity come farewell game consisting of current players and players who didn’t get a proper send-off. The former all-rounder made this suggestion in his social media handles.
“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?” Irfan Pathan wrote.
Irfan Pathan’s XI of retired players:
Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Irfan Pathan, Ajit Agarkar, Zaheer Khan, Pragyan Ojha
