Imran Tahir, a promising leg spinner of Team South africa is representing Chennai Super Kings in the IPL tournament for the past three years. He who won the purple cap by taking 26 wickets in the last season, is yet to play his first match in the ongoing season of IPL. Meanwhile, fans who witnessed him carrying drinks during the matches of CSK, started sharing memes showing their concern over the talented spinner. Now, he came up with a tweet saying that it doesn’t matter as his ultimate goal is team’s victory.
“He will definitely come into the picture as we go ahead. Right now, with the conditions on offer, the team composition has been planned with two foreigners at the top as pure batsmen and then two pace bowling all-rounders. But he will come in with the wickets starting to take turn in the second half. You have the 4-foreigner restriction so you always plan according to the conditions on offer,” said Kasi Viswanathan, CEO of Chennai Super Kings team.
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,”
Now, fans who have been watching his performance for the past years, came up with memes and post supporting the 41 year old cricketer.
