Irfan Pathan's sibling love after Yusuf reached century in Ranji Trophy

Irfan Pathan's sibling love after Yusuf reached century in Ranji Trophy”

But this time around it was his brother for whom Pathan pumped his fists in the air and celebrated. After conceding a big first innings score in Indore, Baroda lost their top-order for not too many and were in danger of following-on before the Pathan brothers got together and stitched together 188-run fifth-wicket stand that gave the visitors a mild hope of coming back into the match.

In the video, it can be seen that as soon as Yusuf reached his century with a huge hit, Irfan left his bat at the non-strikers end, he shouted at his loudest pitch celebrating his elder brother's feat. He scored 111 runs from 125 balls in the first innings with the help of 13 fours and 6 sixes. He clapped for his brother's ton and hugged him again as the team started walking back to the pavilion after the session. The duo is representing Baroda in the domestic tournament of India as the younger one of the two is leading the side.

The wonderful century from Yusuf Pathan could not take his team beyond the follow-on score.

In the second innings, Yusuf faced a similar situation. But Yusuf kept his head high and smashed another ton along with Atit Sheth who batted excellently for his century as well.

The 34-year-old remained unbeaten on 136 off just 154 balls with 16 fours and seven sixes.

However, Yusuf's twin centuries had no bearing upon the result as Madhya Pradesh sauntered to a win by eight wickets, claiming crucial points at the start of the season. In their second innings, Baroda were once again bowled out, this time for 318, leaving Madhya Pradesh a paltry 70 to chase.
