On whom and why did Pathan get angry?

While Rajasthan lost, former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan, who was commentating in the IPL, openly expressed his displeasure.

This was also the reason for Irfan's displeasure because Butler had returned to his country England even before the end of the season. Irfan posted a video on Instagram, in which he termed Butler's sudden return as wrong. Pathan said that all the franchises will have to pay attention to the fact that if any foreign player is not available for the entire season, then he should This should be told in advance, otherwise that player should not be selected.

Referring to Jos Buttler, he said that he is not available for the last 2 matches of Rajasthan and then the playoff matches, which will affect the team. Pathan said that this rule should be applicable to every franchise that if a player promises to play the entire season, he should fulfill it. Irfan made it clear that the country is at the top but if you have promised then you should play the entire season, otherwise there is no need to come.

England players returned

In fact, the England Cricket Board had suddenly decided to call back its players in view of the T20 World Cup starting from June 2. Before the World Cup, England has to play a T20 series against Pakistan, due to which the board took this decision. Now this has created problems for many franchises including Rajasthan. Not only Butler, but the English players of teams like Kolkata Knight Riders, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings, who have reached the playoffs or are in the race for it, have either returned or will return in a day or two.
