In yesterday’s World Cup match between South Africa and Pakistan, Proteas spinner Imran Tahir scalped two wickets and he sent the Twitterverse rolling with his trademark celebration style. Tahir has a knack of running around the ground (see picture below) to celebrate the dismissal which allowed meme experts to enjoy a field day on Twitter. “The nearest traffic officer must have stopped Tahir before reaching the nearest Expressway #CWC19 #PAKvSA,” one fan tweeted. “Breaking: ICC ordered to close all exit doors at Lord’s stadium so Imran Tahir doesn’t run out of the stadium after taking a wicket,” one Twitter user posted. One fan posted a photo of Tahir having a sprint alongside Usain Bolt and captioned the post as “Imran Tahir after taking the 2nd wicket. #PakvsSA #CWC19”.

But as a commentator, he’s brought his fun side out, engaging in banters involving his former teammates. In one of his commentary stints with Harbhajan Singh and Virender Sehwag in England, Ganguly decided to take on Sachin Tendulkar. Harbhajan asked what made Tendulkar superior to contemporary greats like Jacques Kallis and Brian Lara. Ganguly responded saying that the batting legend used a heavy bat, evoking laughter from Harbhajan and Sehwag. He said, “Tendulkar batted on flat pitches, used to open in ODIs and used to bat alright.” The chaff continued. “He has opened the batting with me 225 times and I always took first strike. When he was in good form, I faced the first ball and when he wasn’t in great form even then I faced the first ball,” he said, before adding, “We used to play well together.” Harbhajan had more questions. He asked Ganguly who between Tendulkar and him was a better bowler, to which Dada replied, “There was no competition there!” He revealed that both Tendulkar and he had gone to the MRF Pace Foundation. He recounted, “We both wanted to become pacers. But looking at my bowling speed and Tendulkar’s height, (founder) Dennis Lillee urged us to stick to batting.”
