Bangalore: Feb 3, 2014

 

India discard Irfan Pathan today said that he is working hard on his fitness and hopes to perform well for Baroda in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, starting on February 27.

 

“I have been working with my physio on good programmes. I am fit and played three Ranji matches for Baroda this season. I pray to God that I stay fit in the upcoming domestic one-day matches,” Pathan told reporters at a promotional event .

 

Baroda will take on Mumbai in their opening game on February 27.

 

Pathan said that conferring Bharat Ratna on Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar will inspire other sportspersons to strive for country’s highest civilian award.

 

“This [awarding Bharat Ratna to Tendulkar] will inspire and motivate rest of the sportspersons to achieve India’s highest civilian award,” said Pathan.

 

President Pranab Mukherjee will be conferring Tendulkar and eminent scientist Prof C N R Rao with Bharat Ratna tomorrow at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

 

“How much ever you cherish Sachin’s achievements, it is too less a praise,”concluded Pathan.
