Imran Tahir is one of the most sought-after wrist spinners to have played in T20 cricket and limited overs cricket. Fondly called ‘The Parasakthi Express’ by the Chennai Super Kings’ fans for his running celebration after picking up a wicket, Tahir won the IPL twice with CSK, in 2018 and 2021.

What is even more surprising is that he also broke the record held by MS Dhoni of being the oldest skipper to win a T20 league, by leading the Guyana Amazon Warriors to their maiden CPL title in 2023. The Pakistan-born South African recently completed 500 T20 wickets in the Bangladesh Premier League and became the fourth bowler to do so in T20 cricket history, by picking up a five-wicket haul against the Khulna Tigers.

How long have Imran Tahir and Sumayya Dildar been married?

The story of how Imran Tahir met his future wife is undoubtedly the sweetest thing. While representing Pakistan, his country of origin, in the under-19 team, Imran had once gone to play in South Africa back in 1998. This was when he first met Sumayya and got weak in his knees. Even though it was love at first sight for the leg-spinner, it was not the same for her.

Soon after coming back from South Africa, Tahir realized he was missing her badly. For the next couple of years, he kept flying back and forth to be with her. By then, they were both already in love with each other.


Sumayya refused to leave her country by any means. But that didn’t dishearten Tahir, such was his love for her. After years of dating, he officially moved to South Africa in 2006 to be with his lady love. The two finally tied the knot in 2007. Tahir had to give up his dream of playing for Pakistan but didn’t lose hope of playing cricket again. He finally made it into the South African team in 2011.
