Cape Town - Proteas spinner Imran Tahir continues to impress for the Durham Jets in England's Vitality T20 Blast.

The 39-year-old, who has been rested from South Africa's ongoing tour of Sri Lanka, has been enjoying a county stint and on Thursday finished with figures of 4/16 in 4 overs to help Durham to a 75-run win over Northamptonshire at Chester-le-Street.

The result takes Durham a step closer to qualifying for the quarter-finals of the competition and they have now won their last 5 fixtures. 

Tahir, meanwhile, is now the joint-leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 15 scalps at an average of just 13.53 and an economy rate of 6.34

It is good news for the Proteas ahead of next year's World Cup in England, with Tahir having now notched up 8 valuable matches in his stint with Durham.

Tahir has one more match remaining with the county.
