Now, while talking with Ashwin for his youtube channel, Tahir revealed that he can feel what Faf du plessis went through last season, despite of his decent t20 batting average. “Last year Faf du plessis carried drinks, I think for the whole season. It was quite painful because he is a fantastic player with a brilliant t20 average. This year I am doing the same. I actually got an idea how he felt last year. I have been talking to him as well.” said Imran Tahir to Ravichandran Ashwin.
“I am sure you know the culture of Chennai Super kings . Once they have their overseas four and they are settled, it is very hard for the fifth guy to come in. I hope I get a game” he added.

While talking to the commentators during the match between CSK vs SRH, Tahir said “It has been difficult sitting out, but I have to be honest, I am enjoying and I know how we go about it as a team. I am happy if we are doing well and waiting for my opportunity and hopefully will be ready when I get it. Will be a good challenge playing against the young Indian talent. I see the pitches have started spinning a little bit,”
