Imran Tahir humiliated by Pakistani consulate in Birmingham

Imran Tahir humiliated by Pakistani consulate in Birmingham”

South Africa leg-spinner Imran Tahir has claimed that he and his family was humiliated at the Pakistan High Commission in Birmingham when he went there to acquire the visa to travel to Pakistan for the World XI series later this month. "But I had to wait for five long hours and then was expelled as the office hours were over", read his post.

The 38-year-old also explained what exactly happened with him.

After being left disappointed, Tahir took to Twitter and expressed his frustration.

Tahir went on to inform that the matter was taken seriously only after he approached High Commissioner Syed Ibne Abbas, who instructed a staff for helping him out and he was finally issued his visa.

Imran Tahir will be a part of the ICC World XI squad which will be touring Pakistan later in September for a bilateral limited-overs series. "It's an irony that being Pakistani origin South African cricketer and intending to play in World XI [I] was treated so miserably". The high commission also added that this was because Tahir's family members owned South African passports and additional processes were needed. "Hats off to High Commissioner Ibn e Abbas, who rescued me". Ahsan Iqbal, Pakistan's interior minister replied to Tahir assuring swift action.

The series is aimed at reviving worldwide cricket in Pakistan, which has hosted just Zimbabwe and Afghanistan over the last eight years since terrorists attacked the Sri Lanka cricket team bus in Lahore in 2009.

Tahir has played 20 Tests for South Africa and has 57 wickets to his name, but it is the the shorter formats of the game where he has made his name known, picking up 132 wickets in 78 ODIs and 55 wickets in 31 T20Is. "We will have this investigated and action will be taken against those responsible", Iqbal tweeted.

Tahir visited the consulate to get visas for the upcoming World XI match.
