If there’s one thing we just love about Imran Tahir then it just has to be his iconic running celebration. Over the year’s we’ve seen Imran Tahir celebrating running all around the ground after a taking a wicket every single time. This count would go on for multiple times in a single match but Tahir never seems to get tired.
Which is why in this year’s IPL with Imran Tahir not playing a single game we’ve seem to have missed his celebration to a certain extent. With the choice of team combination, Chennai Super Kings played in this year’s not so successful campaign we couldn’t see an experienced player like Imran Tahir feature in the side.
