Recently, in a live YouTube chat with CSK chat show anchor, Rupha Ramani Tahir has revealed the former Indian skipper always takes some time to send a special message to his son the junior Tahir on his birthday.
“It was a very special moment for my son. Very grateful to Mahi bhai. You know what a wonderful guy he is and what a wonderful captain he is. He is also a great human being. That inspires me more about him and his family,” the veteran spinner was quoted as saying by Cricket Country.
The 41-year old cricketer also remembered playing for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and said, “Every game I played for CSK gave me goosebumps, a really special feeling about it…we play so well as a team. We just try to play as hard as we can and win as many games as possible for CSK, enjoy each other’s success and that’s what makes Chennai such a special team.
