South Africa spinner Imran Tahir, who sees the IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK) as his second home, was asked to pick the sexiest cricketer between MS Dhoni and Faf du Plessis.

Tahir, joining CSK in 2018, loves the support from fans and captain Dhoni in the franchise. He was in a dilemma while picking one between Dhoni and his South Africa teammate Du Plessis.

“It’s a tough one…they both are cool and smart,” Tahir said during the interaction with ESPN Cricinfo.

During the interaction, the 41-year-old went on to name his favorite South Africa cricketer and he picked Hashim Amla. Amla played 124 Tests for his country and scored 9,282. He was considered a run-machine. The 37-year-old, who retired in 2019, has 8,113 runs in ODI with an average of 49.46.

Tahir also opened up on the controversial 'Mankad' rule. “See, I don’t mind it if the bowler has given the batsman a clear warning. If after the warning, the batsman is doing it, again and again, I think it’s only fair to Mankad him”, the Proteas spinner said.
