Mohammad Irfan Blog Introduction by Abdul Habib 4th February 2009 Mohammad Irfan is a 6'10 fast bowler from Multan who lacked someone to make a sifarish (influential backing) for him. Despite being very talented and uniquely gifted due to his height, Irfan was unable to get a placement with any first class cricket teams because of his lack of connections. That's where I stepped in to arrange a meeting for Irfan with Pakistan's assistant coach Aqib Javed (at the NCA) and the rest as they say is history!! This blog isn't for the purpose of hyping Mohammad Irfan up as the next Joel Garner or as an international superstar. This blog is to chart his progress, his successes and his disappointments in his journey towards a place in Pakistan's domestic scene.
