The 6ft, 10 Irfan, who made an international debut during the 2010 tour of England, went wicketless in the two one-day internationals he played in. But he believes he is prepared for a fresh start to his international career.
“I was put under tremendous pressure in that game (vs England) as I was flown in and then asked to play at short notice. I was suffering from jetlag and had fitness issues, and of course I was also nervous.
All these issues affected my performance but all that is in the past. I have worked very hard and if given a chance, I will be ready for the big occasion,” Irfan was quoted as saying by pakpassion.net.
