Irfan Pathan- A resurgent player named to be the next allrounder the Indian team desperately needed seems to have just caught the stardom & gone the downward way, his fitness, form & attitude seems to be going from bad to worse... What do u think is the problem ???

i think he is low in confidence when he ll get some wickets and when he get the confidence then he ll definetly show his best and can become a great allrounder for india He is a great player and i hope he ll do well in world cup and bring the cup back to india

the only problem is the physiotherapist....actually they do not understand indian body in dat way they shud....moreover as they r appointed they dont hav any work during off field events...so they just make players exercise....this is the problem....irfan after gymming n all has lost the free body...now he is unable to rotate his arm fully n hence no pace.....the elasticity goes away....this is the only problem...

I feel pathan when he came first in the indian team he was genuine swing bowler who could swing both ways that was his strength. But then with team management put too much pressure on pathan trying to make him allrounder without fully developing as bowler which meant though he was little useful as pinch hitter but he was not concentrating on his bowling and in process lost his swing esp. inswingers against righthanders and has struggled since besides batsmen around world have also figured him out. So i just hopes he finds his form back in warmup games before world cup starts and if he doesnot then we should not play him in the eleven as he is primarily bowler who can bat.
