Irfan makes a case for himself..
The selectors would be announcing the squad for the next 2 ODIs against the West Indies tonight and Pathan's name would definitely figure prominently in their discussions prior to the announcement. He probably hasn't done enough to suggest that he is back to full-form, but sure has presented a good case for himself. After picking 3 wickets in the first innings of the Ranji Trophy semi-final against Mumbai, he triggered a dramatic Mumbai top-order collapse in the second innings. Mumbai lost their first 5 wickets for nothing with Pathan picking up three of those (Rakesh Patel accounted for the remaining 2). Kukreja, Jaffer, Shah, Muzumdar and Sharma were all back in the pavilion for ducks within the first 20 balls of the innings. It remains to be seem if this would be enough for Pathan to get back into the national squad.
