IPL 2019: We Got Coolest Cricketer In The World Leading Us – Imran Tahir
Having a player like Mahendra Singh Dhoni is always a blessing for any franchise. He is a multi-dimensional player, who can keep the wicket, bat at any order for the team, can handle pressure and most importantly, he can lead the side. CSK franchise has been lucky in bagging him in the first season of the edition. Meanwhile, Imran Tahir cherishes playing under MS Dhoni.
The veteran spinner has played last 3 years with MS Dhoni in Rising Pune Super Giant and then one year for Chennai Super Kings with the second year running. Meanwhile, the Proteas star praises the former Indian skipper.
Under MS Dhoni, we are very calm – Imran Tahir
Speaking of MS Dhoni’s captaincy, the spinner quoted that they got a calm and composed skipper in the ranks to lead the side. He feels that the players will be very calm under his captaincy without taking much pressure.
Further, he added that winning the first two games on a trot was nice for the franchise. He feels that having the initial advantage is very important in a tournament like the Indian Premier League, where quality has always been top-notch.
”We have got the coolest cricketer in the world leading us. And, under him, we are a very calm and a composed group. In a competitive league like Indian Premier League, getting a start like that is always nice. Hopefully, we can carry on like this in the upcoming games,” Imran Tahir said to CSK official website.
On Chennai wicket:
Imran Tahir believes that the pitch at Chennai is going to be same for the upcoming clash against Rajasthan Royals. In the first game, it helped spinners a lot and he feels those kinds of tracks will give spinners a chance to give a flight to the deliveries.
”It was spinning here in Chennai. When that happens, it allows you to bowl with a little bit of a flight, which is nice for spinners. Obviously, the plan will be according to the pitch. It’s really how you plan ahead and practice it,” he inferred.
Well, as Imran Tahir said, they got the calmest cricketer in the world as their captain. It would be interesting to see how the veteran cricketer will come up in the upcoming games for Chennai.
