His impressive show during the recently concluded limited overs cricket series in Sri Lanka has taught Irfan Pathan to “enjoy each and every small moment of success” that comes his way.
“After being out for two years due to injury, this is one thing I have learnt. I need to enjoy each and every small bit of success that comes my way. I have to seize happiness from each and every moment on cricket field,” Pathan said.
“I have realized that whatever has happened in the past is history and I can't afford to look too ahead towards future. But I can control my present and work hard to make things happen.
“That is exactly what I am trying to do. Grab each and every moment,” said the 27-year-old, who won two man-of-the-match awards.
“A good delivery like the one that swung into Dilshan and I got him bowled in the T20 match is certainly satisfying but at the same time my innings of 34 not out is also equally significant as it was very important in the context of the match. These are little successes that I have started enjoying. It lifts your morale.”
