"We worked really hard, but as soon as matches started, curfew was imposed in Jammu and Kashmir... BCCI will help in whatever way they can. But it is possible the situation improves itself," Pathan told reporters.

The 34-year-old was appointed as the mentor-cum-coach of the Jammu and Kashmir cricket team on July 1 last year.
