Profile

Yusuf Pathan always harbored a dream of making it to the national squad, a place which came faster to his younger half-brother, Irfan Pathan. A hard-hitting batsman who wastes no time while at the crease and a handy off-spinner. The Baroda boy was a hit in the Indian domestic Twenty20 and Deodhar Trophies. He will always consider himself lucky for his rare International debut which came in the final of the ICC World Twenty20 in 2007 where India won.

Pathan played the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League for the Rajasthan Royals where he emerged as one of the most successful players of the tournament with both the bat and ball. He scored the fastest half-century of the IPL in 21 balls and was a hit for consistently scoring runs at a brisk rate, relying mostly on boundaries. His success in the IPL led to a berth in the national squad.

Yusuf plays at a crucial lower-middle-order position where he normally is expected to hit the ball from the word go. This is mainly why he hasn't clicked as brightly in the ODI's as he has done in the shortest format of the game. But his ability to clear the fence is undeniable and, along with Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh, he remains one of the cleanliest strikers of the ball India posses at the moment. Add to that, he is a handy off-spinner and his capabilities as a world-class all-rounder make him an asset and any team would die to have.
