BCCI will help Jammu and Kashmir players, says Irfan Pathan

Mumbai: Jammu and Kashmir cricket team mentor-cum-coach Irfan Pathan on Monday said that Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will help the state’s players in whatever way they can.

Pathan along with around 100 other cricketers were asked to leave the camp at the earliest on August 4 amid tension in the state. However, as the situation is getting stable in the state, Pathan feels that the situation may improve itself.

“We worked really hard, but as soon as matches started, curfew was imposed in Jammu and Kashmir…BCCI will help in whatever way they can. But it is possible the situation improves itself,” Pathan told reporters.
