Imran Tahir Biography, Relationship & Career
In February 2017, at age 37, Imran Tahir attained the pinnacle of limited-overs cricket by getting the No. 1 ranked ODI and T20I bowler in the world. It was a testament to his desire to be successful in the top-level, a trait that has helped him resist age and turn it into an entire non-factor. Be it his signature celebratory sprints after choosing a wicket, or the richly charged roars on the subject of drama, Tahir’s enthusiasm has kept him going. That really love for the game stands out in what was an unorthodox cricketing career.
He started playing county cricket in England but didn’t remain there for long. Another smart move, considering South Africa’s continuing dearth of quality spinners. He met his wife, a South African citizen of Indian origin, and settled in South Africa.
The variations in Tahir’s disposable make it almost impossible to break free in the restricted versions of this game, where he has found great success. The same could not be said about Test matches, however, where batsmen do not feel the need to go after him and where Tahir himself has not been at his constant best.
Tahir attained the No. 1 position in ODIs for the first time in 2015, during the 2015 World Cup. At this time, he was the frontline spinner for South Africa but the championship improved his reputation further as one of the greatest limited-overs bowlers. It’s not possible to predict where the finish line is going to be for somebody like Tahir, who’s still in terrific shape physically and that has expressed the desire to keep going for as long as he can. South Africa certainly is not complaining. Besides South Africa, he’s also been an advantage to the different franchises over the planet where he plays.
He had been born to Ramzan Tahir and Atiya Tahir. He’s married to Sumaya Dildar and the couple is blessed with a boy named Gibran.
