Over the years, whether it is the Indian T20 League, Asia Cup, or any World Championship, broadcasters have played a huge role. Their camerapersons have given amazing experiences to watch the game at home. However, in the last few years, the same camerapersons have become the butt of jokes, in an unharming way though.
In the last few years, their legs have been pulled by the fans for giving too much attention to female fans of the game. These incidents have always been a matter of discussion on social media. Also, not to forget, some of these fans are either notable public figures or became after this. For example, one of the Hyderabad franchise’s co-owner in the Indian T20 League has appeared a lot of times on TV.
There are several others who have had the same experience. Meanwhile, in a video that is going viral, cricketer-turned-commentator Irfan Pathan pulled the legs of one of the broadcasters’ camera team. In a video that is doing rounds on social media, the former all-rounder jokingly said that this is the cameraman who makes every female fan viral.

Talking about Pathan, he was part of the 2007 20-20 World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy teams. In the 2007 event, he was the player of the match for the bowling effort in the final against arch-rivals Pakistan. On the other hand, he didn’t play a game after the first warm-up game against Sri Lanka ahead of the 2013 event. A few years back, he retired from international cricket.
After that, he took up Hindi commentary for various broadcasters. Also, he played in the first season of the Lanka Premier League in 2020.
