Test Career

Irfan has taken 10 wickets in 4 Test matches at 38.90 with his best bowling figures of 3/44. He played his first match against South Africa in Cape Town in February 2013. He took 3/86 in that game, taking the wickets of De Villiers, Philander and Steyn. In the process, he helped restrict South Africa to a score of 326 after Pakistan had batted first and posted 338 on the board. Sadly for Irfan, Pakistan lost the match after setting a 4th-innings target of 182 for South Africa. Irfan produced match-winning figures of 3/44 in the first Test of a series during South Africa’s tour of the UAE in October 2013. His bowling helped bowl out the guests for 249 in a match Pakistan won by 7 wickets. He last appeared in a Test against South Africa in Dubai in October 2013.

ODI Career

Irfan has played 60 matches and taken 83 wickets at 30.71 with his best bowling figures of 4/30. He played his first Test against England in Chester-le-Street in September 2010. He went wicketless in the series. He got his first wicket against India in Chennai in December 2012. Irfan demonstrated his match-winning ability with figures of 4/33 in 7 overs against South Africa at Centurion in March 2013, helping to bowl out the hosts for 191 in a rain-curtailed game of 44 overs a side. Pakistan chased down the target with 6 wickets and 28 balls to spare. With his penchant for taking wickets regularly, Irfan continued to feature in the Pakistan squad and in 2015 produced his best figures of 3/30 against Zimbabwe in Brisbane in the ICC World Cup. Batting first, Pakistan scored 235/7. Replying, Zimbabwe were bowled out for 215. Irfan last appeared in an ODI game against England in Leeds in September 2016.

T20I Career

Irfan has taken 18 wickets in 22 T20I games at 35.12 with his best bowling figures of 2/18. He played his first T20I game against India in Bengaluru in December 2012. Playing on 4 December 2014 against New Zealand in Dubai, Irfan took 2/27, including the wickets of Taylor and Neesham, to help bowl out the Kiwis for 135/7 in the first innings, paving the way for an easy 7-wicket victory for Pakistan. Against Zimbabwe in Harare in September 2015, Pakistan were restricted to 136/6. However, thanks to Irfan’s 2/25 in Zimbabwe’s innings, Pakistan won the game by 15 runs, after restricting the hosts to a score of 121/7. He produced his best T20I performance in a match against Sri Lanka in Dhaka in March 2016. In the 10th match of the Asia Cup tournament, Sri Lanka batted first and scored 150/4 in their allotted overs. Pakistan chased down the target with 6 wickets and 4 balls to spare. He last appeared in a T20I against Australia in Canberra in November 2019.
