When Ravichandran Ashwin asked Emraan Tahir when he would get to play an IPL match this year, he said, ‘I have no idea, before Faf Duplesey had to take drinks for the entire season, it is very painful, t His average in -20 is excellent. This year I am doing the same thing, I know how I feel in such a situation. I have also talked to him (Duplecy) on this subject.

Tahir wrote on Twitter that, ‘When I used to play on the field, many players used to bring drinks for me, and now that the capable players are on the field, it is my duty to take drinks for them. For me, winning my team is more important than playing matches. If I get a chance, I will do my best, which is necessary.

Tahir participated in 17 matches of IPL-2019, during which he took 26 wickets in his name. Despite getting the Purple Cap exactly one year ago, Tahir was not given a chance to play any of the 11 matches in Chennai this year. Chennai have included 3 spinners in the playing XI in the current season, including Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla and Karn Sharma, but Tahir did not get a single chance to show his skills.
