DUBAI: South Africa leg-spinner Imran Tahir has said that he felt he deserved a little more respect from the team management who thought of him as worthless. He also said that since Mark Boucher became the head coach, there was no communication with him on plans for the T20 World Cup.

Tahir was one of the three big omissions alongside Faf du Plessis and Chris Morris from South Africa's squad for the T20 World Cup to be held in Oman and the UAE from October 17 to November 14. Though Tahir retired from ODIs after the 2019 World Cup, he had made himself available for T20Is. He is South Africa's second highest wicket-taker in T20Is with 61 wickets at an economy rate of 6.56. Tahir last featured in a T20I for South Africa in March 2019.

"I am not feeling great that I am not in the squad. Last year Graeme Smith spoke to me and said I want you to play in the World Cup, which was in Australia. I said obviously I am available and excited and honoured because you give me respect. I am ready," said Tahir in an interview to IOL Sport on Friday. IANS
