With three wins in 10 outings, Chennai Super Kings are languishing at the bottom of the points table in Indian Premier League 2020. They might, in all likelihood, miss out on a play-offs berth for the first time in the history of the money-spinning league.

Last season’s purple cap winner Imran Tahir is yet to roll his arms in the ongoing edition of the IPL. The proteas spinner has been warming the bench as the likes of Sam Curran and Dwayne Bravo have made the cut courtesy their all-round ability. 

In an interaction with Ravi Ashwin, in his YouTube channel ‘Hello Dubiaahh’, Tahir stated that he has no clue as to when he will get a chance to play this season. He went on to add that it isn’t easy to carry drinks the whole season.

“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 said.

“And once four overseas players are settled in CSK then it’s hard for the fifth guy. I hope I get a game,” he added.

With Bravo ruled out due to a groin injury, Tahir might well get a look in the remaining games. Skipper MS Dhoni and coach Stephen Fleming earlier conceded that CSK’s season might be over. Dhoni, in fact, hinted at certain changes as they look to experiment a bit with their playing XI as not much is at stake in the ongoing season anymore.
