Bring Back Immy!
Sad news for Tahir. He will be rested following the occurrence of an injury, but may return in time for the knock out stages. He is set to miss South Africa’s final 3 fixtures from Group B which included an all important clash against India on Saturday. The leggie stole the headlines with 11 scalps in his first 3 international appearances at an average of just 8.9. Also, touched the record for the most wickets in his first 3 international appearances. He had a very good shout of seriously challenging the leader board for the top wicket taker in this WC with the outstanding dream like start but this injury will inevitably change things. We wish Tahir a speedy recovery and hope to see him back and weaving his magic. He was a star attraction which made great viewing.
You had to adore his enthusiasm, skills and overly jubilant comical celebrations. You could see how much each dismissal means to him. He is a guy who is hungry for success and thoroughly enjoying his time in the South African outfit.
Having won 3 out of 4 fixtures with matches against Ireland and Bangladesh to play, South Africa are on track for a successful tournament.
