Veteran Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan is widely regarded as one of the greatest Indian all-rounders of all time. Having made his international debut in the 2003 Adelaide Test, he is distinctly remembered by many cricket purists for claiming attacking Australian batsman Matthew Hayden as his first Test wicket. During the 2006 Karachi Test against Pakistan, he achieved a distinct record of becoming the only bowler in the world to take a Test hat-trick in the very first over of the match in international cricket.
In 2013, Irfan Pathan appeared in an Asian Paints commercial through their web series ‘Har Ghar Kucch Kehta Hai’. He appeared in the second episode of the series where he can be seen sharing his childhood memories associated with his Vadodara house. The cricketer took a nostalgic trip by visiting the place where he used to play cricket while growing up. He also displayed the place in his house where he keeps his trophies and momentos which he collected from the cricket field.
Quite recently, Irfan Pathan, along with his brother Yusuf Pathan donated face masks to the medical staff and health workers to tackle the nationwide coronavirus crisis. On March 23, Irfan Pathan posted a video in which both brothers advocated the importance of social distancing to their fans.
