Ever since M.S. Dhoni and Suresh Raina announced their retirement from international cricket, sports fans have been asking for a special farewell match.
And now Irfan Pathan has proposed that a charity cum farewell game should be conducted from a team consisting of retired players vs the current Indian team.
Many people are talking about a farewell game for retired players who didn't get a proper send-off from the game. How about a charity cum farewell game from a team consisting of retired players vs the current Indian team? pic.twitter.com/diUiLXr9XQ— Irfan Pathan (@IrfanPathan) August 22, 2020
Let's just say, we aren't the only ones bowled over by the idea:
Fabulous idea @irfanPathan! Every one of you has been a hero for India. This would also be a great return to serious first-class cricket for the current lot, whose skills may have rusted under the #Covid20 #Lockdown! https://t.co/wRsGn3oc81— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) August 22, 2020
If this happens then it will special treatment for 90's kids and for current generation cricket fans— Prince Chauhan (@prprincesingh12) August 22, 2020
