India's spirituality changed 'fearsome' Shaun Tait into serene man

Sydney, Dec. 23 (ANI): Fearsome fast-man Shaun Tait has changed for good - discovering serenity, grace and the spice of life with partner Mashoom Singha in enchanting Mumbai.

The former Australian Test speedster Tait now follows lucrative Twenty20 leagues across India, England, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand with Mumbai as his cricket base.

According to, a 'frustrating' third round of surgery in May on Tait's troublesome bowling elbow afforded him ample time to smell the roses and he said that he's a better person for it.

Although he is still capable of bowling at 150km/h to terrified batsmen, Tait can now be found appreciating temples with Mashoom and her mother Hasha across Mumbai.

Tait said that 'India has made him a more peaceful, adding that the people in the city are peaceful and nice'.

Model Mashoom runs her own entertainment agency and wine import business that serves a burgeoning Indian middle class.

Mashoom also has an affinity with Adelaide having shot a swimsuit calendar for beer brewing giant Kingfisher on Kangaroo Island in 2006, the report added. (ANI)
