While the situation between India and Australia seemed grim during the latest Test series, Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait informed people that he is now an overseas citizen of India (OCI).
The pacer who was part of the Australia’s 2007 World Cup winning team tweeted a picture of his passport.
Tait is married to Indian model Mashoon Singh, whom he met while playing for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2010. The couple got married in 2014.
Reports suggested that he could now represent India as well. But upon clarification, it was found that as per ICC rules, he can only play for India (if at all) in 2020. He would be 38 by then.
Tait, who has clocked the second fastest delivery ever, was one of the heroes of Australian squad of 2007 where he took 23 wickets and was the tournament’s joint-second highest wicket-taker.
