Irfan Pathan pens emotional note to fans post IPL Auction snub

NEW DELHI: After being missed out on earning a contract from Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises in the auction ahead of its 10th season, veteran all-rounder Irfan Pathan penned an emotional letter to his fans and followers.

Pathan, who had a base price of Rs 50 lakh, would have expected a few franchises to pay attention to his all-round skills but the bidding war saw the IPL teams opting for few uncapped players instead.

Taking to micro-blogging website Twitter to express his disappointment over the snub, the 32-year-old cricketer from Baroda explained how despite being suffering five fractures on his back, he didn’t give up his dream of playing cricket again.
