Irfan gives brother Yusuf a chance

New Delhi, May 8: Delhi Daredevils all-rounder Irfan Pathan has said that many people might tease him as he dropped a simple catch of his brother Yusuf Pathan during the match against Kolkata Knight Riders at Feroz Shah Kotla on Monday night.

Chasing 154 to win, Kolkata Knight Riders were off to a good start, a few wickets in in last five overs just added to more excitement as Kolkata needed just 3 runs off the last two overs and they won the match in the 19th over.

During that over, everyone witnessed another interesting moment, as Irfan Pathan dropped a simple one at mid-off to give his elder brother Yusuf Pathan a chance. Being a simple catch, Irfan Pathan floored it which has prompted many to enquire about that dropped catch after Delhi's loss to Kolkata on Monday night.

"God it has happened the second or third time now. Just before that, I got a Karbonn Kamal catch and the next catch I dropped was really the easiest of the lot."

"I have already had a chat about the catch with David Warner but I am sure some more players are going to tease me about it."

Moreover, he also spoke about the team's fielding that wasn't up to the mark on Monday night, and insisted on improving their fielding.

"We keep a check on it. We know it's a long tournament and once we are into the qualifying round it will all depend on one match."
