Other Name: Mohammad Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir Complete Bio & Career

In February 2017, at age 37, Imran Tahir reached the pinnacle of limited overs cricket by becoming the No. 1 ranked ODI and T20I bowler in the world. It was a testament to his desire to succeed at the top level, a trait which has helped him defy age and turn it into a complete non-factor. Be it his trademark celebratory sprints after picking a wicket, or the passionately charged roars on the field of play, Tahir's enthusiasm has kept him going. That very love for the game stands out in what has been an unorthodox cricketing career. 
He began playing county cricket in England but did not stay there for long. He made another jump, this time to South Africa. Another wise move, considering South Africa's perennial dearth of quality spinners. He even met his wife, a South African citizen of Indian origin, and settled down in South Africa. 
The variations at Tahir's disposable make him almost impossible to get away in the limited versions of the game, where he has found great success. The same couldn't be said about Test matches though, where batsmen don't feel the need to go after him and where Tahir himself hasn't been at his consistent best. 
Tahir attained the No. 1 ranking in ODIs for the first time in 2015, during the 2015 World Cup. At this point, he was already the frontline spinner for South Africa but the tournament enhanced his reputation further as one of the top limited overs bowlers. He followed it up with another brilliant showing in the World T20 next year in 2016. It is impossible to predict where the finish line will be for someone like Tahir, who is still in great shape physically and who has expressed the desire to keep going for as long as he can. South Africa certainly isn't complaining. Besides South Africa, he has also been an asset to various franchise over the globe for which he plays.
