Fresh of a Road Safety World Series win for Indian Legends, left arm seaming all rounder, Irfan Pathan was back on the field. Irfan Pathan is the captain of the Bhilwara Kings.

Yusuf Pathan was part of the Indian legends team along with his brother Irfan. The siblings were back on the field playing for Bhilwara Kings. Left arm seamer Mitchell Johnson bowled a short ball and Yusuf ducked under it. The umpires though did not give it a wide and this annoyed Yusuf Pathan who seemed to have a word with the umpires.

Yusuf Pathan was soon dismissed, that’s when Kings skipper Irfan Pathan came in to bat. Pathan took a single of the final ball of the 19th over bowled by Johnson. The duo came face to face in a stand off as the things got heated up. The two umpires had to step in to diffuse the situation. Irfan was seen having a word with Dinesh Ramdin the India capitals wicket keeper as well.
