Irfan Pathan, a Woman & a few anonymous bloggers

I had written a post titled "Indian team for the Cricket World Cup" on the 7th of January, and funnily and interestingly enough the comment-box now seems to have become a warzone between a couple of Irfan Pathan fans... someone saw Irfan with some woman in South Africa....read on, it's as interesting as it can get out of the cricket field...

it was very unfair 2 send Irfan Pathan back from SA, especially as he did so well in Potchefstroom. I think Dravid and Chappell have something against Irfan and if so, rather come out in the open and say what it is. so that Irfan can carry on doing what he does best and that is play cricket. perhaps Irfan has some personal issues to deal with? i mean the guy is only 22 years old - perhaps he has girlfriend problems - pretty much like Zaheer Khan came under the spotlight when he returned home frm SA - it was all in the news about him living with his girlfriend Isha Shirvani? to spread this kind of news, cannot be good for a cricketer's careeer.

Congratulations Irfan on being selected to play the 4th ODI against West Indies. Don't take any notice of what people are saying about u having a girlfriend in your life - so what if u do in any case? it is not a crime

Irfan, you show them what u are capable of doing during the last ODI against West Indies, especially as it is being played in your home town. You will still come out on top and become one of the world's best all-rounders. God Bless You Irfan!

Irfan Pathan definitely has a lady friend in South Africa, as friends of mine saw him with a girl during his tour of South Africa before he was sent back to India. Perhaps this is the reason he is performing badly? but it should not be; he should learn to deal with it and come out in the open and say what is worrying him.

IRFAN PATHAN HAS A GIRLFRIEND! so what? i believe he was seen with a lady friend in JHB at his hotel - perhaps this is the same lady? but who really cares? good luck to him and her!

not sure if it was the same lady in JHB - at the Inter Continental Hotel in Jhb South Africa. Anyway, good luck to him as u say. This surely cannot be the reason he was sent back to India in the middle of the tour? apparently, he was seen with a beautiful young lady in Port Elizabeth. There is no smoke without fire - this rumour is all over the Internet - have seen it a few times now

I have it from a very reliable source that Irfan Pathan has a girlfriend in SA - in Port Elizabeth. There was no lady in Johannesburg. Obviously just a fan - you know how people gossip, but i do believe that he has a special lady friend in SA. Good 4 Irfan! and for her, whoever she may be!

PLEASE leave Irfan Pathan's love life alone - the guy is entitled 2 have a special friend in his life - he should come out in the open and acknowledge her. She is a lucky lady whoever she is!

OK, you guys, let me set the record straight - Irfan was seen in the company of a beautiful young lady in Port Elizabeth - this is the rumour doin the rounds at the moment. This is a fact! now let anybody dispute it. It will not upset his cricket - he has been chosen to play against Sri Lanka - u go Irfan and show them what u made of!

really what does this subject have 2 do with Irfan's cricket? can anybody tell me this? i wonder if Irfan is aware of this on the Net? but even so, good luck 2 him and her whoever she may be. Irfan, if u have a girlfriend, a million hearts must be breaking right now all over India and the rest of the world.

i can tell u 4 sure that Irfan will not two time anybody - he was not seeing a woman in JHB; the lady friend he has, definitely lives in Port Elizabeth. Please stop spreading these terrible rumours about a girl in JHB. There is no girl in JHB.

i thought this was a forum about cricket - why is Irfan Pathan's love life being discussed here? surely there r other forums to discuss this kind of thing - if this person is so sure that Irfan has a girlfriend in SA, why not give us her name? come on. if u know so much about her.

this person who has the so called SCOOP on Irfan's love life, why dont u come out in the open with it, or are u afraid 2 say something?

well i sincerely hope that after all this news about a girl in South Africa on the Internet, that Irfan is able 2 concentrate on the forthcoming matches against Sri Lanka.

there are some sites on the Internet that say that Irfan Pathan had a troubled mind in South Africa - perhaps this is the reason why he had a troubled mind? not so much a troubled mind as much as his mind was on this girl in South Africa?

Well, i have spoken to my Indian friends again and they have confirmed that they saw Irfan in Nando's with a beautiful girl - they were not sure if she was Indian or not. they saw them together in Port Elizabeth.

well if your friends saw Irfan with this girl in PE, tell us what she looks like? these stories r definitely going 2 get back to Irfan Pathan and one wonders how he is going 2 react when he reads these stories.

All we can say is that she had long dark hair and was EXTREMELY PRETTY! A perfect match for Irfan. They also looked so happy together. Like a true couple in love!

we are really enjoying this tremendously. I mean what is better than a nice exciting love story? especially when it involves somebody like Irfan Pathan?

Anonymous said...

wellwellwellwell.....I have read all the comments of anonymous writer's.There is huge conversation between these writer's.Whatever the matter is let us keep it a side.It is his life he has compelete right to deside to whome he is going to marry.I request all the writer's to live the topic & write some comments which help him to improve his performance that's it.This comment is written by p.shwetha

well i definitely disagree with you; this young lady is the reason why Irfan is not doing well at the moment - i mean why has this only happened to him now, after he met the young lady??? it is obvious that she has affected his cricket; he needs to perhaps return to SA and spend some quality time with her. that should improve his state of mind i think

The funny thing is no one will believe me, but guess what? I know Irfan. How? His fiancé is a good friend of mine. Not girlfriend... FIANCÉ! Yup. I have all the goss but I'm not telling, nyer nyer! PS. Those comments about him having a gf in SA are way off. xoxo
