Australian pacer Shaun Tait, who is one of the fastest bowlers world cricket has ever seen, is now officially an Overseas Citizen of India (OCI). The cricketer recently shared this news with his fans through his official Twitter handle. It is notable here that Tait is married to recognised Indian model Mashoom Singha, whom he met during the third season of Indian Premier League (IPL). The two have been married for some time now and frequently visit India, Mashoom’s homeland. Tait shared this news through his Twitter page, where he posted the picture of his OCI passport. The news sent his Indian fans into frenzy.

Reportedly, Tait, during his time with the former IPL side Rajasthan Royals (RR), met Mashoom for the first time in 2010 at an IPL after-party. It is said to be a love-at-first-sight thing as the cupid struck almost instantly. Following the first meeting, where the couple hit it off instantly, they had a four-year relationship before the marriage happening in 2014. Here is what Tait had shared on his Twitter page:

 

Tait, who is out of favour these days with the Australian selectors for the only format he plays at present, which is T20 cricket, is widely remembered for bowling the second fastest delivery in cricket history. He clocked a 161.1 kmph delivery against England at Lords in 2010. Tait shares this record with compatriot Brett Lee. Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar holds the record of bowling the fastest delivery, clocking 161.3 kmph. Tait has represented Australia in 3 Tests, 35 ODIs and 21 T20Is, picking up 95 international wickets across formats.
