Yusuf Pathan caught Virat Kohli on short third man and it soon became the talk of social media. After fans and Pathan brothers, the Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan too joined the conversation about the brilliant catch by Yusuf.
The right-handed power hitting caught Kohli in a game between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). They were defending a small total and needed to remove Virat early to ensure a victory. It needed an outstanding effort by the big man to send Kohli back to the dressing room which made RCB lose the game by 5 runs.
Yusuf and Irfan had a conversation about it on Twitter. The younger Pathan soon engaged in a chat with Rashid on the catch.
Here is what Irfan Pathan tweeted: "Ye catch tha ya Aam todaa hay?? @iamyusufpathan." On which, Yusuf replied, "Bachpan m itne aam tode hain humne sath m abtk adat nahi gayi. @IrfanPathan."
Later the Pathan from two different countries had a fun conversation.
