Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan has tested positive for COVID-19. He became the fourth India Legends from the recently concluded Road Safety World Series player after captain Sachin Tendulkar, brother Yusuf Pathan and batsman Subramaniam Badrinath to fall prey to the virus. Pathan tweeted about the same on his Twitter handle revealing the news.

India Legends came up trumps in the series thanks to an excellent all-round display. They were led from the front by some impressive knocks at the top of the order from openers Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag. Mohammad Kaif and Subramaniam Badrinath played the role of anchors well while Yuvraj Singh, Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan were perfect finishers. The bowling attack was extremely consistent throughout as well.
