Brothers Irfan and Yusuf Pathan got into a heated argument during the India vs. South Africa Champions match in the World Championship of Legends 2024 after a miscommunication led to Irfan’s run-out.

During the 15th match of the World Championship of Legends 2024 between India Champions and South Africa Champions, an incident unfolded involving brothers Irfan and Yusuf Pathan. In the 19th over, Dale Steyn bowled a slower length ball, which Irfan attempted to slog but only managed a top edge. The fielder failed to catch it cleanly, causing confusion. Dane Vilas intervened, caught the ball, and quickly threw it to the non-striker’s end.

Irfan, already halfway down the pitch, couldn’t make it back to the crease in time. He attempted to persuade Yusuf to run for a second, but Yusuf didn’t budge. Steyn, positioned next to the stumps, quickly removed the bails. Frustrated by his dismissal, Irfan lashed out at Yusuf for not attempting the extra run, leading to a heated on-field spat.

However, in a later video released by WCL on their Instagram page, the brothers were seen reconciling after the match. Irfan was seen kissing Yusuf on the forehead and engaging in a light conversation.

On the match front, Jacques Synman and Richard Levi powered South Africa to a strong total of 210/8 in 20 overs. Synman, following his unbeaten 82 against Pakistan, scored 73 off 43 balls, including 10 fours and 3 sixes. Levi added to the momentum with a quick 60 off 25 balls, featuring 5 sixes and 5 fours. Despite a late fightback by Indian bowlers, led by Harbhajan Singh with 4/25, South Africa posted a massive target.

India’s chase faltered early, with their top five batsmen dismissed for 77 runs in 11.3 overs. Yusuf Pathan’s unbeaten 54 off 44 balls and Irfan Pathan’s 35 off 21 balls provided some resistance, but India finished at 156/6, falling short by 54 runs. However, Yusuf’s incredible last-ball finish have taken India to the semi-finals.
