5. Imran Tahir
The leg break bowler made his debut for South Africa against West Indies during the 2011 World Cup, at the age of 32. This is because he became the citizen of South Africa in 2011 and then wore the national jersey.
He is one of the few players who played U19 cricket for Pakistan and international cricket for another country. Since his debut he has been one of South Africa’s consistent performers.
In the upcoming tournament he is expected to lead his country’s spin department. But unfortunately after this year’s World Cup, his age will be not on his side. As a result this might be his last World Cup for the Proteas.
