Former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan is celebrating his 34th birthday on 27th October 2018, Saturday. The cricketer was a bright prospect ever since he made his debut for the national team but unfortunately, his career was marred with injuries and he lost out his name in the Blues varsity sooner than expected.
