Gujarat Lions after many speculations finally announced that they have signed Irfan Pathan and Ankit Soni for rest of the pending season in IPL.
Due to Dwayne Bravo and Shivil Kaushik being ruled out due to injuries, the two all-rounders have come in as replacements in the team.
Last season, Pathan played for Sunrisers Hyderabad with no wickets in either of the four matches. Gujarat Lions will be the sixth IPL franchise Pathan will be playing for. This season, Gujarat Lions have struggled because their all-rounder star player Bravo has been ruled out due to a hamstring injury.
