Tahir says he's more South African than Pakistani

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Imran Tahir says he feels more like a South African than a Pakistani after making a dream comeback to test cricket on Wednesday against Pakistan in the second test.

The legspinner's career-best 5-32 skittled out his country of birth for just 99 and South Africa finished the first day at 128-3.

Tahir says he is "more South African" than Pakistani now and that the opportunity to play for South Africa is something he will "always remember till the day I die."

Only 11 months ago at Adelaide, Tahir returned figures of 0-260 against Australia before he was duly dropped from test squad.
