(Riya Singh, Intern Journalist): Imran Tahir said that his time playing cricket in Pakistan played a significant role in defining his personality. Tahir said on Wednesday, “I used to play cricket in Lahore and it played a major role in where I am. I played most of my cricket in Pakistan but did not get a chance here. I am disappointed about that.”

Tahir, who is married to a South African woman named Sumayya Dildar, migrated to the country that would give him the chance to play international cricket in 2005. Then Tahir was 26. He was eligible to play for South Africa when he fulfilled his prerequisite of four years of residency in 2009. Following last year’s World Cup in England, the 41-year-old withdrew from the longer formats of the game. Having previously led the Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League, he continues to play T20s in franchise leagues.
