Tait married Indian model Mashoom Singha in June 2014 after meeting her during the Indian Premier League, where he played for Rajasthan Royals in 2010. Tait, who played a key role in Australia’s triumph during the 2007 ODI World Cup triumph in the West Indies, has not played international cricket since January 2016 in a T20I against India.
Tait ended the tournament as the joint-second highest wicket-taker with 23 scalps to his name. Fellow-Australian pacer Glenn McGrath topped the list with 26 wickets while Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan took 23 wickets as well.Tait has not played international cricket since January 2016 in a T20I against India.
The Indian cricket team and its fans have always longed for a fast bowler capable of bowling above 145 kmph consistently, and Tait is someone who fits the bill. However, given that he can’t represent the Indian team till 2020, he might never play for the Men in Blue as he will turn 38 by the time he becomes eligible.
