During the India Champions vs. South Africa Champions game in the WCL 2024, former cricketers and brothers Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan had an ugly argument on the pitch due to a misunderstanding, leading to Irfan's run-out. The World Championship of Legends 2024 tournament allows former cricketers to play against the other champion teams and relive the memories.

The video went viral on social media, showing Irfan's aggressive reaction towards his elder brother on the run-out. The incident happened in the 18th over of the game when Irfan and Yusuf were batting. Irfan wanted to take two runs, but Yusuf denied it, which led to the run-out. Irfan was seen shouting at his brother as wanted him to call before denying. After the dismissal, Dale Steyn, who was near the stumps, was seen laughing at the whole confusion moment while Irfan returned to the pavilion.
