Irfan Pathan replaces Bravo in Gujarat Lions squad
Gujarat Lions have marked allrounder Irfan Pathan as a substitution for Dwayne Bravo, who was precluded of the 2017 IPL with a hamstring harm. Irfan, who was unsold at the bartering in February at a base cost of INR 50 lakhs, posted a photo of himself wearing a Lions shirt on Twitter, and said he was "anticipating be a piece of this great unit."
Irfan, 32, has been a piece of five IPL establishments - Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Daredevils, Kings XI Punjab, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rising Pune Supergiant - previously. He has 80 wickets from 102 IPL amusements, aside from 1137 keeps running at a strike-rate of 120.57. Be that as it may, he had a poor keep running with Rising Pune Supergiant in 2016, scoring 11 keeps running in three innings and going wicketless in the eight overs he knocked down some pins.
Lions had trusted Bravo, who did not play a match this season, would be accessible for the second 50% of the competition. He was experiencing restoration in Rajkot, yet couldn't recuperate in time. "While recuperation is going great and I have made boundless change and have partaken in group trainings with the Lions, my body is not prepared to perform at its fullest potential," Bravo had said in an announcement.
Subsequent to making the playoffs a year ago, Lions are as of now in seventh place, with two wins from seven diversions.
