Imran Tahir, who has remained on the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) bench in IPL 2020 season thus far, stated even Faf du Plessis had spent an entire season “carrying drinks” for the staff.

Speaking on Ravichandran Ashwin’s YouTube channel, Tahir stated when being requested when he expects to get a match this 12 months: “I have no clue. Earlier, Faf Du Plessis had to carry drinks the whole season. It was quite painful. He’s got a brilliant T20 average. I’m doing that this year. I actually got an idea of how he felt. I have been talking to him as well.”

Tahir had completed the 2019 version of the IPL as the best wicket-taker with 26 wickets from 17 video games. But final 12 months’s Purple Cap holder is but to get the nod this season after eight video games.

CSK have even performed three spinners of their XI on the similar time — Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla and Karn Sharma — however have nonetheless not been in a position to accommodate the South African leg spinner.

“When I used to play, many players carried drinks for me now when deserved players are in the field it’s my duty do return favours [sic]. It is not about me playing or not, it is about my team winning. If I get a chance I will do my best but for me team is important,” tweeted Tahir earlier this season.
