Irfan Pathan dropped massive hints on Instagram and Twitter that he's not going to be watching the entire IPL from home on Monday. He posted a picture of Gujarat Lions’ letterhead on Instagram and Twitter, leading people to believe he would be Gujarat's replacement for Dwayne Bravo.
However, few minutes later he deleted the posts from social media. But he's done enough to fuel the speculating fires, hasn't he?
The Gujarat Lions have struggled in this tournament mostly because their star all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has been out of action due to a hamstring injury.
After he was ruled out of the tournament on Sunday, the team has probably decided to pick Irfan Pathan to play the all-rounder’s role.
Pathan, who had quoted a base price of Rs 50 lakh went unsold in the IPL auctions this year.
He played four matches in the last season and didn’t pick a single wicket.
