Former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan took to social media to introduce his fans to his new coronavirus quarantine cricket coach, and it was none other than his adorable son. The 2007 T20 World Cup winner is married to Safa Baig, and the couple’s son Imran Khan Pathan was born in 2016. Safa is a model and journalist. Irfan posted the video on Twitter, and captioned it as, “Meet my new quarantine coach… nice try daddy #cricket #love #fatherson”. Here is the super cute video:

In the video, Irfan‘s son bowls him underarm deliveries in a room, which the all-rounder giggles and defends. After a certain delivery, Imran says, “Nice try daddy”, which leads to his father laughing in a quirky manner.
The video was well-taken by his fans too, with many pointing out that his son is cute. One fan commented, “Your cute little one seems to like keeping as well, Irfan 🙂 He may just learn to take out a glove and throw as well”.
