Irfan Pathan is one of the few all rounders over the years for the Indian cricket team.He is a good bowler and a decent batsman.He deserves a better chance to show his abilities.Do you think it was unfair to drop him from the team where as others are given more opportunities?He is a proven talent and should encourage him and bring him back to the team.He is a valuable asset to the team.What do you think?

Irfan pathan is a gud all-rounder. He is very talented. But his main job is bowling and he must concentrate on his bowling. He bats well but not bowling good nowadays. If his form is gud and can perform better then he should be back in the team. Team India cant win World cup with out of form players.

If sehwag is in the team why cant irfan be included in the team, if sehwag deosn't pefroms and still selectors give him a chance on the basis of match winning capabilites of sehwag has, why cant Irfan be included in the side, Irfan is great asset for India, India must use his services effectively

Irfan Pathan has ben given plenty of chances to show his ability so there is no question of him being given a better chance.He has lost pace and does not swing the ball.I think we have better bowlers like Sreesanth waiting for a chance.Pathan was out of form for the past 1 year.Still he was given enough chances to come back.1 year chance isnt that enough.If any other bowler would have been tried out instead of him in that one year we would have had a strike bowler ready for the world cup.Pathan didnt do justice to the faith the coach and captain had in him.So he was sent back midway during the south africa tour.I think he should play 2 years of Ranji Cricket and if he performs there he should return to the squad.I think sehwag also has been given enough oppurtunities ,but he too has failed so he should be dropped from the team.

i completely agree with u,irfan is indeed a gud allrounder,yeah but he cant always perform well in crunch situation...he is no doubt a gud bowler but he cant handle the pressure while batting,but for sure he should be given a chance in srilanka series

I think that initially he should play in games with the teasm he has perfomed well against in the past. As his confdence grows, he should play against the tougher opponents.

pathan is chappel's lackey. he was a promising young cricketer but he loves greg too much. he would better play ranji for a year or two.
