first_imgImran Tahir’s wicket celebrations would put any 40-year-old to shame with the way he runs around the ground, fistpumping in joy. Tahir is the oldest player in the ongoing Indian Premier League and is also the second highest wicket taker so far this season.The South African leg-spinner has spoken at length about his celebrations time and again this season and got talking about it once again with Afghanistan superstar Rashid Khan on Wednesday.Rashid Khan starred with the ball for Sunrisers Hyderabad as they defeated Chennai Super Kings by 6 wickets at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium. Rashid picked two wickets in the match while Tahir also struck twice for the Super Kings but they failed to defend 132 on a good batting surface in Hyderabad.SRH eased to victory with 19 balls to spare as Jonny Bairstow (61 not out) and David Warner (50) once again lay a strong platform for SRH in their run chase with a 66-run opening stand.But it was Rashid who scripted the win for the Sunrisers with the wickets of Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav in the 14th over which put the brakes on Chennai’s scoring and they ended up with a below-par total.How is that for a frame guys?

If I get a batsman bowled or caught-behind then I celebrate like my usual self. I didn’t get the chance today as both batsmen got out leg-before and took the review. My nephews tell me that they love the way I celebrate my wickets,” Rashid told Imran Tahir on iplt20.com”I’m really happy to hear that. I hope you keep celebrating your wickets like that but don’t do that against Chennai,” Tahir replied jokingly.Leggies born across generations, @ImranTahirSA and @rashidkhan_19 talk about each other’s celebrations after the @SunRisers win; a reunion in Chennai!Watch on as Rashid divulges an insider secret!

And playing with a brother like you (Rashid). When you perform against such world class players you feel really happy. I express my happiness with my celebrations. Even my wife and family members don’t have a clue why I celebrate my wickets like that,” Tahir said.Rashid then went on to reveal that his Afghanistan teammate Wafadar Momand told him not to get out to Tahir in the IPL.”Wafadar told me, ‘I will pray to god that you don’t get dismissed by Imran Tahir because he will get you out first and then make you run till your home’,” Rashid joked.Also Read | MS Dhoni shares a laugh with David Warner after SRH finally beat CSKAlso Read | SRH defeat a wake-up call for Chennai Super Kings: Suresh RainaAlso Read | A sweet moment in Hyderabad brings a smile on David Warner’s faceAlso Read | MS Dhoni out with back spasm, not captaining CSK for the 1st time since 2010last_img
