I am the special one, says Yusuf Pathan

Kolkata: Yusuf Pathan might not have ever looked upto Jose Mourinho for inspiration but his latest self-assessment is akin to the current Manchester United coach’s famous statement ‘I am the special one’. So does he harbour hopes of an India comeback with so many ahead of him for those couple of slots in the middle- order?

“It does not matter to me who’s ahead of me (in representing India). I think no one can compete with me. I consider myself as a special talent,” Pathan said on Wednesday. Having scored 39-ball-59 against Delhi Daeredevils, the India discard proved why he is so highly rated in the Kolkata Knight Riders ranks despite his game-changing knocks being few and far in between. “I have to back my talent. It does not take time for things to change. If I continue to perform well, at some point I will get an opportunity if not today then tomorrow,” Pathan seemed positive that he may once again don the India blues.

“I don’t want to look at others. My job is to play good cricket and the start has been good this time. I should be satisfied with my cricket and be prepared whenever I get a chance,” he said. Pathan made it clear that he will never shy away from playing his natural game like he did under pressure against Delhi Daredevils at the Kotla. “There was a lot of pressure I just wanted to play my natural game. You will always get out at some point, be it in the first ball or in the 40th ball. But it’s about playing my shots and making the balls count,” he said about his knock.
