How hopeful is Irfan of regaining his place in Team India? So what went wrong?
A lot of cricketing seasons have passed since. But what Irfan achieved between December 2003, when he made his India debut, and June 2009, when he last played an international match, was nothing less than spectacular. If anything, he took exactly 100 wickets (5 in an innings on 7 occasions, 10 in a match 2 times) at an average of 32.26 and scored 1105 runs (1 century, 5 fifties) at 31.57 in 29 Tests. Similarly, in 107 ODIs, he claimed 152 wickets at 29.91 and made 1368 runs at 22.80, with five half ...more
He was a great all rounder and a bowler who had a very good outswinger
....however he has cut down on his pace considerably and his bowling is nowhere
near the mark as earlier...probably due to injuries.
The problem is that with so much of cricket today...they need to take better care of their physique
and exercise like Kapil Dev...Botham....Lillee etc... who took care of their fitness first.
He is young and has learnt his lesson...so a bit of hard work and dedication will ensure his place
in the national team again.....nothing to worry about.
