After J&K Cricket Association closed all its cricket activities amid prevalent situation in Kashmir, its star attraction and former Team India all-rounder Irfan Pathan has left Kashmir.

Like all other players including Jammu based cricketers were asked to leave Kashmir on Saturday, Pathan was also asked to leave. As per the plan Pathan on Sunday left from Kashmir after taking 12:30 flight from Srinagar airport.

“We were able to arrange tickets from Srinagar on Sunday and he has left Srinagar and is out of Kashmir now. As we don’t know anything about the situation we don’t know when he will be back,” JKCA official said.

However, JKCA was unable to arrange tickets for Coach Milap Mewada and former Team India trainer Sudarshan V P who are still stuck in Kashmir.

“They will be leaving on Monday as we couldn’t arrange tickets for them on Sunday. Only tickets of Irfan could be arranged for Sunday,” they said.
