In the Jim Afro T10 League being played in Zimbabwe, former Indian all-rounder Yusuf Pathan played innings so smoky, they got hotly contested. Yusuf Pathan of the Joburg Buffaloes team played an unbeaten innings of 86 runs in just 26 balls aided by 9 sixes and 4 fours against the Durban Qalandars. On the basis of this Yusuf tackle, the Joburg side achieved the target of 143 runs in 10 overs with the loss of 4 wickets in 9.5 overs and confirmed their place in the final.
Yusuf Pathan said about his entries that this is a very special moment for me. It becomes even more special because my son is viewing this entrance from the royal box and I want him to be proud of his father. I am sure he too will be inspired by all these moments and one day he will play for India.
In the Jim Afro T10 league, Yusuf Pathan is part of the Joburg Buffaloes team, captained by former Pakistan team captain Mohammad Hafeez. Yusuf Pathan also praised the young Zimbabwean players for his team. He said that I want to talk about the young Zimbabwean players who continually boost everyone’s confidence in the team. All the players on the team are playing their roles very well and have kept things very simple. I am very happy with the performance of the young players. Because it’s a great tournament and when you play well, it bodes well for your future.
Yusuf further said in his statement that the older players present in the team should give confidence to the young players. This is your job because young players can play an important role for you in big matches. On the other hand, when young players perform well under such conditions, it is also a very good thing for their career. When I was young, I also learned like this from my veteran players.
