The innings also included 11 consecutive hits to the boundary 6, 6, 6, 6, 4, 4, 6, 4, 4, 4, 4. His couple of years with the Sunrisers have not inspire confidence so far.
He became a regular feature of the national One Day International team, but is yet to make his test debut. Chappell coached the coaches of the academy. Yusuf's IPL moment-to-remember came inwhen he made a cracking ball against Mumbai Indians and almost single handedly won the game for the Royals who went down just by a whisker.
In the final of the Duleep Trophy cricket tournament, Pathan scored a hundred in the first innings and a double hundred in the second and led his team West Zone to a three wicket win over South Zone.
Yusuf ended the season as Baroda's fourth-highest scorer and third-highest wicket-taker. Though Rajasthan lost that match, Yusuf made a striking impression with his knock and was scooped up by Kolkata Knight Riders in Pathan hadn't got as many opportunities in his maiden season with SRH, but he saved his best for the final game of the season in which he bludgeoned a ball 45 against Chennai Super Kings, albeit in a losing cause.
He was named in the Indian team for Asia Cup to be held in Bangladesh. Yusuf needs to justify his role in the side if he wants to continue in the IPL.
