All those towering sixes from Yusuf Pathan’s blade that clinched the IPL crown for Team Jaipur and brother Irfan’s wily outswingers that took Yuvraj Singh’s Team Mohali to the semis counted for a lot.
The Pathans will soon move into a palatial Rs 2.5 crore bungalow in Vadodara, the design for which is now ready.
The Pathans’ new address in Tandalja is a plush five-bedroom home spread over 15,000 square feet complete with lush green lawns and state-of-the-art interiors. It will also boast a gymnasium, a swimming pool and parking space large enought for a couple of big cars. The bungalow will come up not far from their present residence, a four-room house, that the family moved into three years ago following Irfan’s early success.
Before that, the Pathans lived in a one-room tenement behind a mosque in Mandvi where their father worked as a muezzin.
