Baroda all-rounder Yusuf Pathan is in his best form as he started the Ranji Trophy with back to back and exceptional centuries in the opening game against Madhya Pradesh. And a video of Yusuf’s brother Irfan Pathan celebrating the hundred by jumping in joy. Both the Pathan brothers represent Baroda in the tournament.
Recently, Yusuf Pathan was seen exchanging sweets with the Jawans at the Baroda airport on the festive occasion of Diwali on Wednesday. As the whole country is celebrating Diwali, Yusuf thought of celebrating with Jawans this time. Apart from exchanging sweets, Yusuf also acknowledged them for working on a holiday.
He took to Twitter and posted pictures of him spending some valuable time with the Jawans and captioned them with a message which read, “Salute to the #jawans who are working even on the festival day. We exchanged sweets at the Baroda airport on the occasion of Diwali. #HappyDiwali.”

Yusuf is playing Ranji Trophy under the captaincy of his brother Irfan Pathan. Yusuf, who plays for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) couldn’t back his strong performance after the first game. He failed against Andhra and scored only a solitary run in both the innings.
Baroda needs to start winning soon and the form of the experienced lad remains key if they want to qualify to the next round. Yusuf is now enjoying a break of a couple of weeks before his team face-off against Tripura in a crucial Group C encounter.
May the light of the diyas guide you on the way to happiness and success. Happy Diwali to you and your family!
