eh! when did Imran Tahir became so important that we have a whole thread dedicated to him. Last time I remember watching him bowl he was getting thrashed 70 odd in 8 overs by mighty Faisal Iqbal and Naved Latif.
I recommend SA not to waste their time on this rubbish, he is just going through a purple patch and he will soon get back to his old ways.

I saw them play in England.....decent team but I don't think they're good enough to Australia.
I would have been more impressed if they had actually manged to beat India in India eralier this year whether they had a 1-0 lead going into the last test where they won then toss and were 1-100 odd.
The fact they couldn't capitalise in India makes me doubt their ability to beat Australia.
Don't think it's likely either. If Tahir was able to play, though...
Interesting how this thread has gone from "Imran Tahir is white apparently" to almost "Imran Tahir walks on water"
He is certainly a good addition to the South African talent pool but I dont think he is going to put them over the edge.

Patrick Compton article on Tahir…
"I would be grateful to Cricket South Africa if they gave me the opportunity. I will carry on trying my best and bowling from my heart - that is always the way that I play my cricket."
No lingering ambitions to play for Pakistan? "No," he smiled, "I have already forgotten about that."
"Since I first played for the Titans last season, this is the best that I have ever bowled," he said.
Turns out the Dolphins turned him down ( ) and what the article doesn’t go onto to say was that Goolam Bodi of the Titans and formally of Natal cricket was the guy who recommended him to the Pretoria franchise, who then asked for a second opinion on Tahir and Mohammed Yousuf was the man who gave Imran a glowing reference and urged the franchise to sign him up. So fair play to both Bodi and Yousuf!
