He is that sort of a character you cannot take your eyes off. Imran Tahir was initially not picked by any team in the auctions and that was surprising as he is the best limited overs bowler in the world. Rising Pune Supergiant finally got Tahir onboard and one has to admit that was the best selection they did as Tahir has been a boon for the team. Today they are playing Rising Pune Supergiant who need to win to solidify their standings at the points table. GL won the toss and opted to bowl first. RPS were looking good but that is when Tahir was introduced into the attack and then he did what he does best. He picked up 3 wickets and kept a lid on the score. Tahir gave away only 27 runs in 4 overs and that is what pegged back GL.
Tahir picked 3 wickets and then there was a point when he was also on a hattrick, but that did not happen. This is how Twitter reacted to his feat:
What does #ImranTahir have for all that energy?! #RPSvGL

@ESPNcricinfo Sarcasm is that he is a replacement!
May be the finest replacement one can have#imrantahir#whataspell

Difference between @shoaib100mph and #ImranTahir… One runs from boundary to take a wicket and other runs to boundary after taking one.
