Seriously, I’m scared. The South Africans have been hiding Imran Tahir for months, with Graeme Smith dropping noises about a “secret weapon” in his arsenal. And thus far, he’s proven he’s worth the hype, helping the team to victories over Australia and Zimbabwe.
This guy might be the Ajantha Mendis of 2011. I just hope the Indians figure Tahir out quicker than they did Mendis — ironically, the World Cup’s ridiculous duration may be the thing that saves us.
