Port Elizabeth: Pathan brothers are perhaps India's most popular siblings, devastating on the field and charming off it. They may be playing in different teams in the IPL, but they are always much concerned about each other.
Irfan Pathan, playing for Punjab Kings XI said that he feels the pressure watching his brother Yusuf bat and prays for him.
Yusuf Pathan, playing for Rajasthan Royals continues his terrific form in the second edition of the IPL and Irfan said he liked to watch his brother in action.
"I get very nervous while I am watching him (Yusuf) bat. I just don't want him to get out," Irfan said.
When asked about the on-field rivalry between the two brothers, especially when he is bowling to Yusuf, Irfan who plays for Kings XI Punjab said, "Then it's a different matter."
Yusuf's knock in the super over against Kolkata Knight Riders was a perfect example of power-hitting and Irfan too agrees that it was one of his brother's best efforts ever.

"No one will ever forget that Super Over. The way he batted that day was simply superb. The whole scenario around the over was tremendous, so Yusuf's effort was amazing," the left-arm all-rounder was quoted as saying in the IPL's official website
