Mumbai: Discarded India cricketer Yusuf Pathan on Monday expressed optimism that he would be able to make a comeback into the national squad like his brother Irfan, who is presently playing in the triangular ODI series in Australia.
"Obviously will try to play well (in the West Zone one day tournament commencing here on February 22). Irfan has come back after a long time and bowled well in last match and is doing well. When I start playing I will perform well. I have full confidence I will make a come back into the team," said Pathan, who was part of last year's victorious World Cup squad.
The 29-year-old Baroda all-rounder, who hits powerfully down the order and bowls flat off breaks, was out of of the Indian team since the tour to the West Indies where his performance was disappointing.
