Imran Tahir celebration after taking Colin Munro irks the Newzealand batsman, both appear to change words across the field in the PSL match.

Imran Tahir is known for his rageful celebrations running while running across the field and blowing fists on his chest whenever he takes a wicket. However, Newzealand’s cricketer Colin Munro has come out to be a no fan of it.

In the match between Multan Sultans and Islamabad United, Munro and Tahir were spotted exchanging few words after the latter picked Munro’s wicket in the match.

Munro miscued a shot in the 5th over of the game by Tahir and Sohail Tanvir was at the right position to grab the ball. Tahir’s celebration in the very next second irked Munro.

In response, he looked back and blew some words towards Tahir. The 40-year-old bowler also responded back, certainly an unpleasant sight to watch on the cricket field.

Munro, post the game, revealed he is tired of seeing the spinner celebrate the way he does and further admitted that he called Tahir a clown earlier.

“I am tired of seeing him (Imran Tahir) celebrate like that and I called him a clown and he took it the wrong way and then you saw what he said to me, so we will leave it at that, eh?,” said Munro, reported Hindustan Times.

Later in the game, Tahir also took the wicket of Shadab Khan and was seen signalling something back to the dressing room of Islamabad United, probably a message to Munro.

In the end, Multan Sultans defeated Islamabad United by nine wickets (DLS method) to book their berth in the playoffs for the first time. Moreover, this season they became the first team to qualify for the play-offs.

The match was reduced to nine overs and Islamabad scored 91 for 7 in the allotted overs. In reply, Sultans chased down the target in seven overs and lost just the solitary wicket.
