Irfan Pathan wants to coach IPL franchise

Irfan Pathan was one of the best all-rounders in his heydays. His batting skills and bowling led India to famous wins across the globe. The veteran recently completed the Level 2 coaching course at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru.

He wants to coach an IPL franchise in future. Irfan played for Jammu & Kashmir team as a coach-cum-player and did a fabulous job.

In his interview with CricTracker, he opened up about his future ambitions.

“Yes, I would love to coach an IPL franchise going forward and hopefully it will happen,” he said.

He further praised Rahul Dravid for his association with NCA.

“The best thing that has happened to Indian cricket is Rahul getting associated with NCA. I have a huge amount of respect for him. Rahul Bhai has performed his role with utmost sincerity. Look, we know how Rahul Dravid got involved in U19 and India A. But how he gets involved in each and every coach as well in terms of sharing his knowledge, listening from their perspective as well which for a guy of his calibre is a big task,” he added.
