LAHORE Rookie fast bowler Mohammad Irfan has witnessed a surprising turn of events in his life after he was picked Sunday to play for Pakistan in the World Twenty20 championship but a day later dropped by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). The PCB replaced the six-foot eight inches tall fast bowler with left-arm spinner Abdur Rehman for the tournament in the West Indies. However, Irfan is philosophical about the whole episode and hopes that he will finally get an opportunity to play for Pakistan in the future. Irfan said he was informed about the news by Pakistan coach Waqar Younis. Wicky Bhai came and informed me about the decision personally. He told me that I shouldnt lose heart and that I was still in his plans to play for Pakistan. Of course, Im dejected at being dropped but Im not defeated. Hopefully, God has something better in store for me in the future, Irfan was quoted as saying by Cricistan website. Irfan was reminded that T20 cricket was not the best place for him to make his debut, and that too in a game where any bowler can take a beating. I can see the logic in that and maybe this wasnt the right time for me. I have to focus on the future. My next assignment is to play the Pentangular tournament for the Baluchistan Bears and I will make sure that I raise my game even higher, he said.
