Yusuf to marry soon: Irfan Pathan

It's raining good fortune for Indian allrounder Yusuf Pathan. His younger brother and former India representative Irfan, says that the man who is bound to win a place in the World Cup 15-member squad is also likely to win the heart of a suitable young maiden.

"You know, marriage is going to come with time. First my brother has to get married and it is going to be soon," Irfan said.

Yusuf who recently bagged a 2.1 million deal with the Kolkata Knightriders is on the look-out for a bride and his family are lending a hand.

"Hopefully the new bride is coming," said Irfan. "We are just about to select a girl for him. But for me, it is going to take some time."

When questioned about his own marriage plans, Irfan said that his desire to win back his place in the national squad has eclipsed them for the moment.

"For me, I just want to make a comeback for the team then everything's going to follow," he told a news channel.

Yusuf, whose stellar performance in the first edition of IPL had helped Rajasthan Royals lift the title, was bought by the Shah Rukh Khan co-owned KKR for Rs 9.66 crore.

On the other hand, Irfan, who earned Rs 3.7 crore at Kings XI Punjab, will now play for Delhi Daredevils with a Rs 8.74 crore contract.
