Chennai Super Kings (CSK) spinner Imran Tahir, who hasn't played any matches in IPL 2020 is yet to make his return. Last year, Tahir finished the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as the highest wicket-taker with 26 wickets from 17 games.

Despite having a powerful performance last year, the purple-cap holder hasn’t yet got the opportunity in the ongoing thirteenth season so far. Currently, the team has spinners like Piyush Chawla and Karn Sharma, but Tahir is still waiting for his chance. 

As fans are worried about CSK's low performance and Tahir's return in the playing XI, CEO Kasi Viswanathan has made it clear that a playing XI spot is round the corner for the star leg-spinner.

While speaking to ANI, Viswanathan said that the conditions in the UAE have forced the team management to go with two foreign batsmen and fast bowling all-rounders. 

"He will definitely come into the picture as we go ahead. Right now, with the conditions on offer, the team composition has been planned with two foreigners at the top as pure batsmen and then two pace bowling all-rounders. But he will come in with the wickets starting to take turn in the second half. You have the 4-foreigner restriction so you always plan according to the conditions on offer," he explained.

Even Tahir himself understands that IPL 13 is all about team composition and giving the right guys the nod. 

"It has been difficult sitting out, but I have to be honest, I am enjoying and I know how we go about it as a team. I am happy if we are doing well and waiting for my opportunity and hopefully will be ready when I get it. Will be a good challenge playing against the young Indian talent. I see the pitches have started spinning a little bit," he told the commentators during the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Further while talking about the mid-season transfer, CSK CEO made it clear that they aren't looking at trading. "CSK has never brought or released players in the mid-season transfer window and we have honestly not even gone through the rules and regulations that come into play if we are looking at a transfer. We are not looking at any player," he said.

"It is a competition after all and I don't think anyone would want to loan players to another franchise. Some might be playing and others might not, but all players are picked at the auction with numerous plans in mind and for different situations that might arise during the course of the tournament. You do not go in with just Plan A. You have an A, B, C and D," he added.
