After heated on-field exchange with brother Yusuf, Irfan Pathan’s adorable patch-up gesture. Watch | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Never-seen-before visuals of former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan yelling at his big brother Yusuf after a shock run out dismissal at World Championship of Legends took social media by storm on Thursday.
Amid a horrible mix-up, Irfan was thrown under the bus by Pathan Senior as the former got run out at the non-striker’s end during India Champions clash against South Africa Champions.
And soon after the dismissal, a fuming Irfan was seen shouting at Yusuf, telling him ‘pehle bol na’.
However after the game, a calm Irfan was seen making an adorable patch-up gesture for his elder brother.
In a video posted on social media, Irfan was seen kissing Yusuf’s forehead and hugging him after the end of the game.

The heated exchange between Irfan and Yousuf occurred in the 18th over of the India Champions run chase when Irfan hit a Dale Steyn delivery to deep covers. The Pathan brothers took a single and Irfan wanted a second too.
But Yusuf ended up watching the ball and raised his hand to ask Irfan to stay put.
As Irfan was already halfway down the pitch, by the time he turned back to get back to the crease, the throw from the deep landed in the hands of Steyn who removed the bails to run out Irfan.
Although South Africa Champions won the match by 54 runs, India Champions eventually qualified for the semi-final on the basis of a superior net run rate.
