Brothers in Cricket - 1: Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan

Today, I'm gonna start a new series of pictures featuring cricketing brothers - brothers who've played cricket together at some point of time in their careers...

I'll start with our own Indian big hitting cricket brothers - The Pathan brothers - Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan

Yousuf and Irfan Pathan
The Pathan brothers Yusuf and Irfan Pathan grew up in a mosque in Baroda, in an impoverished family. His father served as the muezzin.

Younger brother Irfan Pathan started early in the Indian team as a fast bowler but then slowly became an all rounder. But, poor bowling form led to him being dropped from the Indian test and ODI team.

Slowly, Yusuf Pathan took over the scene when he burst into the Indian ODI and T20 team with his power hitting in IPL.

Currently, both these brothers are out of the team and going through a rough patch.

But, I hope they work hard and come back in a great style.
Here is wishing both these brothers good success in future with the Indian cricket team.
