Former India allrounder Irfan Pathan has posted the best message on the Valentine’s Day. The ex-cricketer had a heartwarming reply to legendary Sachin Tendulkar’s post on the occasion of Valentine’s Day. People across the world are celebrating the day of love today and are busy wishing their loved ones.

But while most of them are wishing their better halves, Sachin Tendulkar and Irfan Pathan came up with something different. Sachin Tendulkar posted a video of himself batting in the nets on Valentine’s Day and captioned the picture:

“My First Love! 😀”

Irfan Pathan then came up with an incredible reply to his former teammate’s reply, writing:

“Aur Aap humare #Firstlove (And you are my first love)”

Sachin Tendulkar, meanwhile, recently came out of his retirement to face Australia’s Ellyse Perry for an over during the Bushfire Cricket Bash. He will be seen in action again next month during the Unacademy Road Safety World Series. Sachin Tendulkar will lead the India Legends in the five-nation T20 cricket tournament which will showcase some of the biggest names in cricket from India, Australia, Sri Lanka, West Indies and South Africa.

Irfan Pathan, on the other hand, retired from all forms of cricket last month. While the former India allrounder played in domestic cricket last year, his last appearance for India had come way back in 2012. Irfan Pathan was dropped from the team after the T20 World Cup in 2012 in Sri Lanka and was never recalled since then.

He represented India in 29 Tests and picked up 100 wickets, with his best figures being 7/59. In ODIs, he picked up 173 wickets from 120 matches. His best figures are 5/27. In T20Is, he bagged 28 wickets from 24 matches. As of now, he is busy in his role of commentator.
