Former South Africa spinner Imran Tahir has said that the Indian cricket team’s overconfidence cost them both the ODIs against South Africa. The Proteas registered easy wins in both the matches. Meanwhile, Imran Tahir is currently playing for the World Giants team in the Legend League Cricket in Oman.
“I don’t judge any team but India is a very good side and this South African team is just growing up and India misjudged them and they were overconfident that they can defeat this team easily and this is the main reason for Indian side defeat,” Imran Tahir told ANI after the match against Asia Lions.
“India dominating world cricket in Test and one day both from last 4 to 5 years but this Proteas team played very well and they took good advantage of their home conditions and turned it into victory,” further added the veteran spinner.
South Africa has won the series already with one game remaining. “This is the biggest victory than anything I believe this win is very special as this team is too young and they beat the nation who is dominating both formats for a long time. SA played so well and locked both series,” added Imran Tahir.

As far as World Giants’ performance is concerned, they lost the match against Asia Lions after putting up a huge total of 205 as Misbah Ul Haq-led team chased down the total in a nail-biting thriller on the back of wonderful innings from Tillakaratne Dilshan and Upul Tharanga.
“This type of league is too good and I wish it will continue like this in upcoming days so we retired cricketers will meet up and play,” concluded Imran Tahir.
