Yusuf Pathan becomes first to win IPL with two teams

Yusuf Pathan1Chennai, May 28 (Agency)

Explosive batsman Yusuf Pathan became the first player to hold the Indian Premier League title with two different teams after his Kolkata Knight Riders outplayed Chennai Super Kings here Sunday. Pathan was part of the Rajasthan Royals squad which won the inaugural IPL in 2008.

 

The 29-year-old attributed Knight Riders' success in IPL-V to Gautam Gambhir's captaincy and compared it with the leadership skills of Shane Warne, his captain at Rajasthan Royals.

 

"The way Gautam has captained in the last two years, it is comparable to Shane Warne (at Rajasthan). He has supported the players a lot. We have played as a team. We have enjoyed each others' success," said Pathan after Knight Riders beat Super Kings by five wickets here at Chepauk.

 

Pathan had hit a crucial 40 against Delhi Daredevils in the first play-off in Pune.

 

"I got to play the role in the semi-final, today Bisla (Manvinder) and Kallis (Jacques Kallis) did it. The way Bisla was in and out of the team, he did very well to score those runs," said Pathan referring to Bisla's match-winning knock of 89 and Kallis' 69.
