Imran Tahir is one of the favorites of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) loyalists. The South African wears his heart on his sleeve and his box office celebrations are already legends – the two endeared him to CSK fans. Few of CSK players like MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina have received nicknames from the franchise and its fans, and Tahir is one of them as well. It is called “Parasakthi Express”. As CSK ditched some big names, they decided to keep the South African spinner despite having only made three matches at IPL 2020 in the UAE. On Friday, CSK shared a video of Tahir talking about his return to IPL and some shots of him bowling in the nets. But what caught the attention of fans was the new hairstyle he sported.

Chennai fans flocked to express their excitement at seeing Tahir again in CSK yellow, while many others went gaga over her “lion” hair.
Imran Tahir looks like a lion, he contains the true CSK spirit within him.
Saw him bowling yesterday during the CSK training live broadcast and seems like a thankless touch. I hope he will continue to perform well and deliver every time he is called up!

Despite the slow pitches in the United Arab Emirates, Tahir has been selected to play only three times in IPL 2020. The foreign quota being largely filled by Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Sam Curran and Dwayne Bravo.
In the three games he played, Tahir could only pick up one wicket, but played economically – with 6.90 points per over.
Also this year, Tahir could see his playing time be limited to a few matches. CSK bought Moeen Ali at the auction and in all likelihood he will be a regular on the team thanks to his versatile abilities.
Sam Curran’s magical shot against India in the final ODI almost secured him a place in the Game XI as Faf du Plessis, Dwayne Bravo, Lungi Ngidi, Mitchell Santner and Jason Behrendorff will battle Tahir for the machines. to overseas slots remaining.
The Chennai Super Kings, who finished seventh in the IPL points table last year, begin their 2021 IPL campaign against last season’s finalists Delhi Capitals at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.
