Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan shared an adorable video of his father on the occasion of Father's Day. The southpaw took to social media to share a short clip in which the cricketer can be seen asking his dad who he loves the most in his life.
Irfan's father gives a priceless reaction to this question to which the cricketer eventually agrees in the end. Irfan and Yusuf's father said that he loves his wife the most as the others came in after her in the timeline. "Hum hai to tum aya," he says in the video.
"Hum hai tum ho ? happy Father’s Day to my fav person in the whole world. #khansaab #FathersDay," the 37-year-old captioned the video.

Meanwhile while expressing his views on India's T20 World Cup squad that will fly to Australia later this year, Pathan said that Shreyas Iyer has proven himself in the home series before this against West Indies and Sri Lanka. However, he also warned that the Kolkata Knight Riders captain must improve his batting against the pacers.
"T20 World Cup is still far away. But apart from these couple of games (against South Africa), he has done well, be it the series against Sri Lanka or West Indies before the IPL. So yes, he is making his case very strong. He performed really well, he is just coming hard against the bowlers from the word go and that's the kind of character you need as well when you want someone to bat higher up the order," Irfan said on Star Sports.
"At the same time, as far as the fast bowling is concerned, he needs to get better, and obviously because the World Cup is still far away, quite a few games he will be playing. In those games, whenever he is getting the opportunity after all the guys come in, he needs to make sure that he has a consistent performance," he added.
Pathan rated Iyer as the guy for the future. For now though, Iyer and Rishabh Pant-led Team India's focus would be on the T20I series decider against South Africa that is scheduled to start later on June 19 in Bengaluru.
