Imran Tahir has emerged as the answer for South Africa’s long lasting problems in the spin department. He has not only played a supporting role in a much famed pace bowling attack but also managed to lead the attack with his wicket taking habits. Whenever there is some assistance from the pitch, especially in the shorter formats, his control and variations have proved lethal. Tahir’s attitude towards the game has been for everyone to see and his celebratory run after picking a wicket has been embraced by one and all. Besides possessing a very orthodox action he has the googly in his arsenal, making him a complete bowler.
