Former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan has revealed that the idea of ​​making him bat at number 3 was Sachin Tendulkar, not former Indian coach Greg Chappell. In the first ODI of the series between India and Sri Lanka in 2005, Pathan was promoted to the batting order at number-3 and he scored an impressive 83 runs off 70 balls.

India defeated Sri Lanka by 152 runs in this match. After this, Pathan batted at the top order in many matches. Pathan was originally a bowler and many believe that one of the reasons why Pathan's career was not long after his excellent start was the team management's strategy to develop him as an all-rounder.

Pathan, who took 301 wickets in international cricket, said on Instagram with Raunak Kapoor, “Even after my retirement, I had said that Greg Chappell had no hand in ending my career. As far as I was concerned about promoting for batting at number three, it was Sachin Paji (Sachin Tendulkar), not of Idea Chappell. '

  • Some cricketers targeted Dhoni

    Former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni led Team India to many important victories, winning ODIs and T20 World Cups but now some former cricketers targeted him that he was not supported.

  • The coach told Irfan - some things are not in my hand

    Former cricketer Irfan Pathan told a channel that he did not get much support from the coach and captain. Even when he questioned the then coach Gary Kirsten for not getting a chance in the team, he said that all is doing well, but some things are not in my hands.

  • 'Dhoni made a decision 3 years ago not to give chance in World Cup'

    Former opener Gautam Gambhir recently claimed that Dhoni had decided in the year 2012 that he, Virender Sehwag and veteran Sachin Tendulkar would not play together in the 2015 World Cup. Gambhir said that there were reports in the media that our fielding was not good, so it was decided. Then Sehwag and Gambhir did not get a place in the 2015 World Cup.

  • 'Raina was Dhoni's favorite player'

    Yuvraj Singh, one of India's legendary cricketers, recently said that during the 2011 World Cup, Dhoni suffered a selection headache when he had to choose between him, Yusuf Pathan and Suresh Raina in the playing XI. Yuvi had said that Raina was Dhoni's favorite player and he was always supported. He said that Raina was not in rhythm before the 2011 World Cup, yet he was given a chance in the team.

  • Dhoni did not even talk before dropping: Sehwag

    Former opener Virender Sehwag claimed that Mahendra Singh Dhoni had not spoken to him once even before he was dropped from the team in the 2011-12 CB Series. He had said that he was called a slow fielder in the media, but Dhoni never told him anything in front.

  • Dhoni's fans have some other opinion

    There is no shortage of fans of this former captain and he says that even if Dhoni did it, for the good of the team. They believe that India won 2 World Cups under the captaincy of Dhoni, in such a situation, when the result was good, then how should they be questioned. At the same time, some believe that Dhoni spoiled the career of some such cricketers.

He said, 'Sachin Paji advised Rahul Dravid to send me to number three. He said that he (Irfan) has the power to hit sixes, can run fast with the new ball and can also play fast bowlers well, so he should promote up the batting. '

The former all-rounder said, “It was introduced for the first time when Muralitharan was at the peak of his best bowling against Sri Lanka and the idea was to attack against him.” Dilhara Fernando started throwing the ball at the time with the split finger and the batsmen did not understand that either.

Pathan, 35, said, “Therefore, the thinking was that if I managed to deal with it, it could go in the interest of the team. Especially given that this was the first match of the series. Therefore it is not correct to say that Chappell spoiled my career. Since he was not an Indian, it is easy to target him. '
