Daud or Yakub: What’s in a Name? Irfan Pathan Says It Like It Is

Cricketer Irfan Pathan may not have had the best year in terms of his career, but the bowler sure ended 2016 on a high note.

Pathan, who married model Safa Baig earlier this year, was blessed with a baby boy on 20 December.

Twitterati showered the couple with congratulatory messages. The cricketer also took time out to reply to a few tweets.

The cricketer however doesn’t seem to have taken too much offence.

Irfan later announced on Twitter that they had decided to the name his first child Imran Khan Pathan.

We wonder if the baby’s name was inspired by Pakistani cricketer Imran Khan.
