India were chasing 172 to win the T20I against Sri Lanka in 2009. But India started crumbling and after collapsing to 115 for seven, with 57 runs still needed of just 29 balls there was little hope left for India. Sanath Jayasuriya and Malinga Bandara bowled fantastically to pick wickets at regular intervals and had the match well under control.

But Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan were still at the crease. Yusuf had already built a reputation as a big-hitter while Irfan was capable of a few big blows but at that stage not many expected them to pull off a victory. The borthers however, seemed to relish each other’s company and smashed ball after ball to the boundary. They finally won the match with 4 balls to spare.

Irfan hit the winning runs with a monstrous blow for six. Yusuf ended with 22 off 10 balls while Irfan hammered 33 off 16 to take India home.
