Irfan Pathan recently gave us one more reason to adore him after he proposed a charity-cum-farewell match between the retired Indian players and current Indian players. His proposal adds a little twist to the idea of fans seeking a farewell match for MS Dhoni.
In a tweet, Pathan mentioned 11 retired players who could be a part of farewell-cum-charity match.
“Many people are talking about a farewell game for retired players who didn’t get a proper send-off from the game. How about a charity cum farewell game from a team consisting of retired players vs the current Indian team,” Pathan tweeted.
Pathan, who retired in January this year, had also requested BCCI to give Indian players, who are not making their way to the national side, to let them play in other cricket leagues across the globe.
The idea of Pathan won a thumbs up from Congress leader Shashi Tharoor too. And netizens to believe it is a million-dollar idea.

Two guys Dravid n MS..are more than happy to quit the game without farewell match..so you can replace them with kaif n harbhajan..but then problem will be who’ll keep wickets..?— Ketan V Bhirud (@KetBhirud1) August 22, 2020

Pathan is one of the three bowlers to have claimed a Test hat-trick for India and the first in the world to claim it in the first over of the match.
