    April was a big month for Irfan's profile in the UK. The story about his discovery made into the Eastern Eye newspaper and Spin Magazine. They based their features on the interview I conducted with Irfan. I told Irfan about the media mentions and he was quite surprised that media half way across the world had already heard about him.

    Irfan said it's hectic at the NCA these days because all the players shortlisted for Australia are getting fitness tests done. And yes Shoaib is there too, Irfan said he briefly spoke to him but that they only exchanged salams.

    Irfan had the day off from the NCA so he played a club cricket game for PNT club, Abdul Razzaq was his captain! Razzaq was really impressed with Irfan's line and length, he also complimented Irfan on the fact that the ball was going straight for the batsmens head!! Razzaq told him that if he works hard then he could go very far.

    Irfan took 3/30-ish today. 1 wicket was lbw and one was caught at slip. The third wicket was off an onside bouncer that the batsman had a go at and skied it, Irfan said there also a few catches dropped but that comes with the territory.
