Case of split loyalties for senior Pathan in KKR-Daredevils clashApril 28th, 2011 - 11:49 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 28 (IANS) The Pathan family made their presence felt at the Ferozeshah Kotla Thursday, but Mehmood Khan was disappointed after his elder son Yusuf Pathan couldn’t get the massive hits for Kolkata Knight Riders against Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here Thursday.
For Khan, it was a case of split loyalties as his elder son turned out for the Knight Riders while his younger son Irfan played for Daredevils.
“It was great to see both my sons playing against each other. It is a completely different feeling for me. I don’t know whom to support in this match,” said Khan.
Though he was unfortunate not to see Yusuf’s big hits, he was impressed with Irfan’s performance. Yusuf was caught by his brother at long-on off Umesh Yadav.
“I love to see Yusuf’s big hits, but today I was disappointed. But I am happy with Irfan. He bowled well and took a couple of good catches. He is slowly finding his rhythm and I am hopeful that a national call is not far,” he said.
