Bowling first change is the cause for my failure:Irfan
The Dropped medium pace bowler Irfan Pathan blames that the reason for his failure is that he is not being given the new ball. The swing bowler said that bowling first change meant he would not get the swing the a bowler will get while handling the new ball.
“I’m not complaining that I should be given the new ball, but yes, if you are bowling first change, you are not going to get that much swing. Your wicket tally is going to reduce,” Irfan told the news reporters today.
He also said that even in the seam- friendly English and Aussie pitches its difficult for first change bowlers to get swing and more wickets.
He adds the natural tendency of swing will never die.
