Bangalore:Irfan Pathan is not just optimistic about making a comeback to the India team; he is confident he will be back. It has been two weeks since he resumed bowling, as he recovers from a stress reaction in his back that kept him out of the Ranji Trophy, and, more importantly, India's list of 30 probables for the 2011 World Cup. Despite being ignored, Irfan remains undaunted.
"I have that confidence because I have started bowling and I see it [the ball] is doing something,' Irfan told ESPNcricinfo. "I am working on something that was missing over the last two years. I am pretty sure it is going to make a big difference. If you look at my age, I am just 26. There are lots of years left in my bag."
