Limited overs numero uno bowler Imran Tahir who is playing for the Rising Pune Supergiant, was not even picked in the first auction. But just look at what he has done. Imran Tahir has already knocked off the heavy top order of Mumbai Indians. Imran Tahir by doing this has proved how valuable a leggie is in the shortest format. he got rid of Partiv Patel, dislodging his wicket from the back. Jos Butler followed the same suit and fell early, Rohit Sharma also could not make a big impact after he made a comeback after a layoff.

Mumbai Indians are currently looking down the barrel and it seems the change of captain is proving good for the RPS unit, who finished second last in the 2016 edition. As we speak, Rajat Bhatia strikes with his cutter first up. He sent back Ambati Rayadu. It has to be said it was a soft dismissal. Ravichandran Ashwin was supposed to be a part of the RPS franchisee, but he is not playing because he wanted to take a break after a long home season.

And now, after Tahir has created a mighty stir in the MI camp, the Twitterati are just going crazy with his appearance. Especially, his run-up is the new thing to tweet about!
