IPL 7: Delhi Daredevils Name Imran Tahir as Nathan Coulter-Nile's Replacement

New Delhi:

Pakistani-born South African spinner Imran Tahir will replace injured Australian fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile in the Delhi Daredevils team for the remainder of the seventh Indian Premier League.


Tahir is eligible to play when Delhi Daredevils take on Kolkata Knight Riders at the Feroz Shah Kotla, following the IPL Technical Committee's decision to approve the replacement on Wednesday.

Coulter-Nile had injured his hamstring in the match against Chennai Super Kings on April 21.

Meanwhile, Zaheer Khan of Mumbai Indians and Saurabh Tiwary of Delhi Daredevils too have been ruled out of the IPL for remainder of the season, following their respective injuries.

In accordance with the IPL Player Regulations, the two franchises may each take a replacement player from the list of players who registered for the 2014 IPL Player Auction but were not taken in the auction.

Zaheer had suffered a severe side strain after bowling just three deliveries of his final over in Mumbai's game against Kings XI Punjab at Wankhede, while Jharkhand batsman Saurabh, who didn't play a single game, had a shoulder niggle which turned out to be a full-fledged injury.
