South Africa cricketer Imran Tahir insists that his side will be competitive in the upcoming edition of the ICC World Cup next year in England.
Furthermore, Tahir is confident to Dale Styen an appropriate send-off. Meanwhile, this could be the final major tournament of many South African cricketers.
Imran Tahir is hopeful about South Africa reaching the semifinal but can’t assure of lifting the trophy.
“I’m looking at next year’s World Cup as a tournament that South Africa can do well in. We have a good team and have a great bunch of guys who will fight to the end and never give up. I can’t predict that we will win the World Cup but I’m pretty sure we can get through to the semi-finals and then anything is possible,” Tahir said to Pakpassion.net.
The veteran leg-spinner also feels the likes of Morne Morkel and Dale Steyn is not replaceable in that line-up.
“Just like Jacques Kallis, you simply cannot replace Morne Morkel and Dale Steyn who have been great servants of South African cricket,” Imran Tahir added.
Imran Tahir has his eyes set on World Cup
Tahir noted that he feels he will still be there to crack at the World Cup next year and hopefully bring it to South Africa.
“I would love to win a trophy for South Africa in white ball cricket. A number of cricketers who have played before me – Jacques Kallis, Mark Boucher, and Graeme Smith are legends of the game, but weren’t fortunate enough to win an ICC-sanctioned event during their playing careers. I might join those names, but hopefully I will still be around in 2019 to play in the next World Cup and have a crack at winning the trophy in the UK,” he said to Sports24.
Meanwhile, Imran Tahir is currently out of the South African ODI, however, he is hopeful to earn his spot back.
