Irfan Pathan has been brought in as a replacement for Dwayne Bravo by Gujarat Lions for their remaining seven matches in the IPL 2017.
After Bravo was ruled out of the tournament on Sunday, the Gujarat Lions franchise decided to pick Irfan Pathan to play the all-rounder’s role.
Pathan, who had quoted a base price of Rs 50 lakh, went unsold in the IPL auctions this year.
He has been part of five IPL teams before this one and it will be his sixth now. Before this, the left-hander was a part of Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Daredevils, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kings XI Punjab and Rising Pune Supergiants.
