BIO: Yusuf Khan Pathan is an Indian cricketer who made his debut in first-class cricket in 2001. A powerful and aggressive right-handed batsman and a right-arm off break bowler, Pathan is considered to be one of the cleanest hitters of the cricket ball in the world. Yusuf Pathan was made a part of the Indian squad for the inaugural Twenty20 World Championship in September 2007, following his impressive performances in the Deodhar Trophy and the Inter-state domestic Twenty20 competition. He kept up his smart moves and was subsequently selected for the Indian one day team. Yusuf made his One-Day International debut for India against Pakistan on 2008 after which he became a familiar face of the national One-Day International team. But his most notable achievement to date didn't come till 2010. It was the final of the Duleep Trophy cricket tournament, when Yusuf Pathan led his team to victory with an outstanding 108 runs in the first innings and an unbeaten 210 from 190 balls in the second innings which became a world record for the highest successful run chase in first-class cricket history. During the 2008 IPL, he scored 435 runs and took 8 wickets and was awarded the Man of the match title in the final against the Chennai Super Kings. In the 2011 IPL auction, he was bought for a whopping $2.1 million by Kolkata Knight Riders
