South  African spinner Imran Tahir has been retained by English county club Hampshire, subject to the leg-spinner’s visa clearance.

“It’s the business end of the season and there is no Kyle Abott. So Imran comes in and hopefully gets us over the line in terms of promotion. As the season goes on it’s more conducive to spin, that and the fact he has been with us before means he will fit in easily and make a difference,”, Hampshire’s director of cricket Giles White was quoted as saying by BBC.

Tahir has made as many as 77 appearances for the club.
