Do you think Irfan pathan should be given one more chance?

Here I want to discuss that should Irfan pathan be given one more chance in India team?
We all know that he is a fine allrounder. Although his perfomance as a bowler has decreased considerably but still he is a decent bowler.
He can be included in the team as a batting allrounder.
Upcoming England tour could provide him the best platform where many of the frontline players were injured. Selectors had given yusuf and jadeja so many chances as allrounders again and again but neglected irfan from such a long time. Don't you think India is wasting such a talent? Atleast he should be given one more chance.

Hi sir,
I dont want that Irfan Pathan is given chance because he has played well for India in past. I would rather love to see him preform in domestic cricket and 'earn' his place in the side rather then just 'getting' it because he has played well in past.

I have not seen him preforming well from quiet a long time in domestic as well as in IPL. So as far as today is concerned he do not deserve to be in team india.

God bless all.

Yes, Irfan Pathan is the very good all rounder. Past one-two years he is not performing as per his capabilities. Indian selector has to give some chance to Irfan Pathan so that he show his talent again. He can contribute with bat and bowl. Indian selector has not over looked the Irfan Pthan. He played some good cricket for India in the past. Now more than half Indian cricket team is injured. So selected has to given a chance to Irfan Pathan also.

Dear Aman,

Irfan Pathan is a good all-rounder. No one can forget the hat trick he got against Pakistan. He was also a part of the T20 world cup team playing crucial roles by taking important wicket at the right time thereby giving blows to the opposite team.

The Pathan brothers' blitz once helped us to win a T20 against Sri Lanka.

Now, with many senior players out, Irfan must be given a chance to prove himself. If he did come back, then he would make a great all rounder for our team.

So my view is that, Irfan must be included in the squad.

It is the known fact that famous cricketer Irfan Pathan is the very good all rounder. And it is also the very known fact that he is not performing as per his capabilities and abilities. BCCI should give him one more chance. When BCCI can tolerate non performing players, Irfan can be given one more chance.

I think Irfan should get one more chance. He is a grate all rounder. He performed in past well. It is the time to support him and don't spoil a grate player. If they are talking about his performance then I say he is no less than others. We saw the performance of the team in England. Are they in good form? If BCCI say they are in good form so they are selected then I feel Irfan can perform very well as compare to them.

Thanks and regards,
