Irfan Khan Pathan, one of the finest all-rounders to represent India in recent years, blows 27 candles on his birthday cake on October 27. It is an age when a truly gifted cricketer usually attains full maturity and finds himself at the peak of his prowess. As far as Irfan is concerned, he finds himself out of Team India at this stage of his career. In fact, the last time he represented India in Test cricket was April 2008, and in One-Day Internationals and Twenty20 cricket in early 2009.

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.

It happens when the body breaks down and you try to bowl according to it.
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.
