Yusuf Pathan will be coming back to the greens after a while to represent the Indian legends in the Legends League later this year. A part of the 2007 T20I World Cup champion squad for Team India, Yusuf will be hitting his stride again in the league of the seasoned campaigners.
In a video that he posted on his Instagram, the erstwhile Baroda all-rounder was seen peppering the cherry to all corners of the park that featured a string of important cover drives and a handful of massive strikes those would have travelled at least a couple of rows back in the stands.
He posted the clip on his Insta, quoting, “It feels really good to be back in the nets preparing for the legends league.”
