Proteas spinner Tahir seeks tips in Pak to exploit England's weakness
Lahore, may 30 (ANI): South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir has returned to his native Pakistan to seek tips from old tutor Abdul Qadir in a bid to exploit England's weakness against spin when the teams meet in July.
Tahir, who developed as a spinner in Pakistan before qualifying to play for South Africa last year, arrived last week and trained with Pakistan legend Qadir on Tuesday.
"I will try my best to learn more and more from the master. Whatever leg-spin I bowl was taught to me by Qadir who in his day was a master spinner and a role model for youngsters," Sport24 quoted Tahir, as saying.
Qadir, 56, who was revered as a great leg-spinner during the 70s and 80s, predicted Tahir could play a lead role for South Africa, whose attack is dominated by pace.
"I have told him how to bowl differently. Tahir is very talented and since he is my old student I agreed to help him when he contacted me last month. If conditions in England remain dry and there is less rain then I am sure Tahir will be very handy against England," he added.
South Africa will play three Tests, five one-dayers and three Twenty20s on their tour of England. The first Test begins at The Oval on July 19. (ANI)
