Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan made a significant revelation on his 8th wedding anniversary, sharing a picture of his wife Safa Baig for the first time, which quickly became viral. Pathan, who has faced criticism previously for concealing his wife’s face in social media posts, penned a heartfelt tribute to Baig, acknowledging her myriad roles in his life as a mood booster, comedian, troublemaker, constant companion, friend, and mother to their children. In a touching note accompanying the photo, Pathan expressed his deep appreciation for his wife’s presence in his journey, marking their eighth year together. This public unveiling marks a notable departure from Pathan’s past discretion regarding his wife’s visibility.
Additionally, Pathan recently extended his support to struggling cricketers Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer amidst their batting woes, attributing their performance slump to the absence of senior player Virat Kohli and the injury to KL Rahul. Pathan, speaking at the Asian Legends League launch, emphasized the need for strategic decision-making by the team management, deliberating on whether to introduce new players or persevere with the current lineup. Despite their recent downturn, Pathan defended Gill and Iyer’s capabilities, citing their prior achievements.
Meanwhile, in the ongoing series against England, India faced a setback in the first match, trailing 1-0 after a loss at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. However, in the second Test in Visakhapatnam, India seized control, led by Jasprit Bumrah’s masterful display of reverse swing following Yashasvi Jaiswal’s impressive double hundred. India’s dominant performance with the ball restricted England to a modest total, granting them a significant lead. As they prepared to commence their second innings, India remained unscathed, signaling a promising start to their pursuit in the match.
