Former India allrounder Irfan Pathan has a special coach quarantined with him as he prepares for the Lanka Premier League (LPL). Irfan’s three-year old son reacted ‘Nice try, daddy’ at one of his father’s shot after he bowled for him in their room at Ambalantota, Sri Lanka.
Irfan, who will be featuring in the LPL after signing a contract with the Kandy Tuskers franchise, practiced in his Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Resort room with his son Imran, who can be seen swinging a ball in his father’s direction which was lightly delivered back.
