Imran Tahir has been Chennai Super Kings’ go-to man this season. The veteran South African bowler has delivered almost in all the games for the defending champions and is one of the biggest reasons behind the team’s fine run this season. The South African tweaker, who turned 40 just a few weeks ago, has been bowling Chennai Super Kings to memorable victories in the ongoing season.
His exploits with the ball, trademark celebration and his passion for the Super Kings have made him a cult figure among the Super Kings fans. The Proteas star is fast becoming one of the most popular overseas stalwarts in Chennai and he is making sure to keep the fans happy with his performances. And the fans are also making sure to do their bit. On Wednesday, one such fan took to Twitter to post a painting of Tahir.
Calling Tahir a champion, the fan wrote:
“Hello champion😍😍😍😍😍here is my simple sketch for you sir❤❤❤hope we win this trophy once again

And Tahir was quick to show why he is loved so much by the Super Kings fans by responding to the fans tweet quickly. The leg-spinner first apologized to the fans for failing to do well against Sunrisers Hyderabad before writing:
“Humbled by your love sir. Can imagine how long it would have taken for you to do this. Sorry didn’t bowl to the expectations you ppl have in me today. Apologies if given another chance to play will do my very best #yellow”
