Pakistani pacer Mohammad Irfan to play for KKR in IPL 2011

Mohammad Irfan, a left-arm medium pacer from Pakistan will be playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 4. Irfan who is about 7 feet tall is one of the tallest cricketers of all time. It was KKR bowling coach, Wasim Akram who recommended him to the KKR team. As he is not a Pakistan international, he doesn't need to go for auction and is signed directly by KKR.

Born in Gaggu Mand, a rural place in Eastern Pakistan, Irfan initially had to quit cricket to support his family. His talent brought him back to the game. At the age of 28 he is now knocking the doors of Pakistani team too as he was nearly selected for World T20 team.

Though he has been selected by KKR, he may need to be approved by various bodies like PCB. He may even need to get NOC from Pakistan government.
