Irfan Pathan is known for his ability to get the ball to move the way he wants to. The left-arm pacer scalped 301 wickets for India in all three forms of the game put together. But then, apart from his bowling skills, Pathan was also extremely handy with the bat.
He has scored over 1000 runs in Tests as well as ODI cricket. In fact, Pathan has even scored a century in the longest format of the game for India. And now, in a video clip that was uploaded on his Instagram handle, Pathan can be seen absolutely smashing the ball in a net session.

The Pathan brothers were last seen in action in competitive cricket in the final of the Road Safety World Series tournament against Sri Lanka in March 2021.

Irfan Pathan too produced an excellent performance with the ball in the final against the Sri Lanka Legends. In the 4 overs that he bowled, the left-arm seamer picked up a couple of wickets, and also gave away only 29 runs as well.
