The three-time champions Chennai Super Kings are having an underwhelming season in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). They are languishing at the bottom of the points tally with just three wins in ten fixtures thus far. Though the team still has an outside chance of making it to the playoffs, it seems practically impossible as the Yellow Army is struggling hard to find the winning rhythm.

The Purple Cap holder on the 2019 edition of the T20 extravaganza, Imran Tahir is yet to play even a single game in IPL 2020. He has been warming the bench since the beginning of the tournament as Ravindra Jadeja and Piyush Chawla are leading the spin attack. There is currently no place for the South African in the Playing XI as the team is playing with four overseas players namely Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Josh Hazlewood, and Sam Curran. This has raised a few eyebrows and the fans are not very happy with his decision. However, Tahir has no complaints.

I love CSK’s culture: Imran Tahir

Recently, while speaking to the former CSK player Ravichandran Ashwin, Tahir reckoned that CSK is the best franchise as it treats all the players very well. Showering praises on the Yellow Army, the spinner told Ashwin that the management has been taking great care of him and his family.

“Best team, from my heart is Chennai. I’ve been all over the world. I’ve never seen so much respect given from a franchise. I’ve never seen someone look after my family so well, the fans in Chennai are unbelievably lovely,” Tahir told Ashwin on his YouTube show ‘Hello Dubaiahh.’

Imran further highlighted that the management is aware that there are days when things don’t go according to the plan and the players fail to live up to the expectations. Thus, they don’t add extra pressure on the players and maintain a jolly environment in the dressing room.

“When I play there it was a different atmosphere. And the main reason is I love their culture. They don’t talk about performances and are always supportive and that’s is what I like about it as in cricket You’ll perform one day, and not on another,” Tahir concluded.
