South Africa’s spin magician Imran Tahir has made it clear that he has never felt ‘unsafe’ in Pakistan. There has been a lot of questions regarding the security of players in a country where previous mishaps have happened. Tahir has lent his support to Pakistan, amid concerns regarding the safety of players during the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2020).

Tahir himself was born in Lahore and is currently plying his trade for Multan Sultans in the PSL.

In a recent interview, the 40-year-old spoke about his experience of playing in Pakistan’s domestic T20 league, whilst also discussing the level of cricket in PSL.

The veteran further spoke about his ‘source of happiness’ in a recent interview with cricket Pakistan.

Tahir said, “I am very happy to be here [in Pakistan], because my family has not had many opportunities to see me perform live. This is my second time I am here which is a source of happiness for me and my family. I came here with the world XI previously.”


He continued, “Your own brand will always have more value than anything else. Shifting cricket from Dubai to Pakistan is a big step for the country.

“All players participating in the PSL believe that it is one of the toughest leagues in the world because of the high quality of cricket being played. You have to be at the top of your game. Cricket fever has gripped the country and it is a great experience,” Tahir maintained.
