As per the quotes in India Today, Irfan Pathan said, “There has to be a method to the madness. The method is that you don’t lose your wickets in clusters. When you lose wickets in clusters, there are problems.”

The veteran all-rounder also opined that the Indian batters should be able to pace their innings and form a partnership if they lose two or three wickets in quick succession.

Irfan Pathan also talked about the shot selection by the Indian batters, saying if they continue making a mistake while a shot selection, we will never see big scores put up on the board.

The veteran all-rounder concluded by saying, “So there is a scope for improvement there. If you lose wickets continuously with wrong shots, I feel you will not get to see the big score we talk about. So keeping that in mind, it is extremely important for the shot selection to be improved.”
