Yusuf Pathan is known for his hard hitting style of batting and his ability as a spinner. He hasn't played a single Test for India but his hard hitting style of batting made him one of the most sought after players in T20. While his brother Irfan Pathan was making waves in Indian colours, Yusuf Pathan was doing the same in domestic cricket. His ability to score runs quickly - he had the highest strike rate in the 2006-07 Ranji Trophy (min 200 runs) - coupled with impressive performances in the one-day Deodhar Trophy and Twenty20 domestic tournament in the 2006-07 season was rewarded with a spot in India's squad for the inaugural World T20, in South Africa. India went on to win the tournament as Yusuf became a mainstay in the shorter formats of the game. He is also known for his blistering performances for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. The peak of his ODI career was when he spearheaded an incredible victory for India against New Zealand in 2010. He scored a whirlwind 123 of 128 balls and helped India chase down a total of 315. Since then, his ODI form has been patchy and that has cost him a place in the national setup.
