Out of favour, India all-rounder Yusuf Pathan hit a sublime hundred while brother Irfan Pathan also hit a fifty against Madhya Pradesh on day 3 of the Ranji Trophy encounter between Baroda and Madhya Pradesh. Known for his hard-hitting batting, Yusuf played an innings which once again highlighted his power hitting. In his innings of 111, the senior of the two brothers was more aggressive as he hit 13 fours and six maximums. Younger brother Irfan also kept pace with his innings of 80 which featured ten fours and three sixes.

Earlier, the home side was in a spot of bother after conceding 551 runs against MP and then losing four wickets for 54 runs at one stage. But the Pathan brothers dug in and rescued the side. Together they forged a partnership of 188 runs which helped the Baroda side avoid follow-on.

The Cricket Academy of Pathans (CAP), a coaching institute of Indian cricketers Irfan Pathan and his brother Yusuf Pathan, who have collaborated with the Indian Army, has sponsored two youngsters from Jammu & Kashmir to train in their Noida-based academy.

Danish Qadeer (18 years) and Shahrukh Husssein (20 years) were selected in the trials conducted by the Indian Army in Kupwara district.

“Kids were selected by the Indian army for which they had conducted trials at Kupwara district of J&K. Out of 100 cricket enthusiasts, two were selected by the Indian Army for training under CAP,” Irfan said.

Irfan Pathan sets up West Zone’s win

Vadodara, GUJARAT :

Mumbai :

He may have been released by his last year’s IPL franchise, Rising Pune Supergiants. Still, Irfan Pathan had a reason to smile on Monday. The veteran seamer exploded the explosive North Zone batting line-up to set up West Zone’s thumping eight-wicket victory in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy Twenty20 championship.

In fact, Pathan’s spell of three for 10, with the prize scalps of Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant and Yuvraj Singh, would have impressed the sizeable IPL team coaches and scouts present in the President’s Box along with all three national selectors.

Pathan’s job was made easier by the North batsmen who committed hara-kiri and threw their wickets away. While Shikhar Dhawan poked at one that moved away from him to offer Kedar Jadhav a sharp chance in the slips, Pant and Yuvraj played extravagant shots against a moving ball to offer skiers on the off-side in the circle.

Barring Gautam Gambhir, who registered a second successive fifty before being dismissed off the penultimate ball of the innings, none of the other batsmen tried to apply themselves. As a result, a target of 106 was never going to ask questions of West Zone.

Parthiv Patel and Shreyas Iyer’s quickfire partnership at the top ensured West overhaul the paltry target with more than seven overs to spare and make up for the opening day’s loss against Central Zone. Iyer along with Ankeet Bawne and Priyank Panchal will now join the India A squad for the warm-up game against visiting Australians.

The scores:

North Zone: Shikhar Dhawan c Jadhav b Pathan 3, Gautam Gambhir c Tambe b Thakur 60, Rishabh Pant c Hooda b Pathan 2, Yuvraj Singh c Hooda b Pathan 0, Amit Pachhara run out 5, Parvez Rasool c Pathan b Nayar 5, Mayank Dagar run out 11, Harbhajan Singh c Pathan b Chaudhary 7, Pradeep Sangwan (not out) 10, Mohit Sharma (not out) 1; Extras (lb-1, w-2) 3; Total (for eight wkts. in 20 overs): 107.

Fall of wickets: 1-12, 2-24, 3-24, 4-32, 5-39, 6-57, 7-90, 8-106.

West Zone bowling: Irfan Pathan 4-0-10-3, Shardul Thakur 4-0-29-1, Ishwar Chaudhary 4-0-23-1, Abhishek Nayar 3-0-18-1, Pravin Tambe 4-0-23-0, Deepak Hooda 1-0-3-0.

West Zone: Shreyas Iyer lbw Rasool 30, Parthiv Patel b Sharma 56, Aditya Tare (not out) 14, Ankeet Bawne (not out) 4; Extras (w-4) 4; Total (for two wkts. in 12.4 overs): 108.
