Zaheer Khan (born 7 October 1978, Shrirampur town in Ahmednagar district, Maharashtra), is an Indian cricketer who has been a member of the Indian cricket team since 2000.

A left arm Fast bowler considered as the spearhead of the Indian bowling attack, Zaheer is known for his ability to swing the ball both ways, and as a batsman also holds the record for the highest Test score by a No. 11. After leading the Indian pace attack for much of the early 2000s, recurring hamstring injuries in 2003 and 2004 forced him out of the team, and after returning for a year, he was dropped again in late 2005. Strong performances on the domestic circuit have seen him recalled to the team as its leading pace bowler. He might not quite have the skills of Wasim Akram, who he has often been compared to, but mentally Zaheer has become as good as Akram. He has taken 271 ODI wickets at an average of 28.83 runs per wicket taking 4 wickets in a match 6 times (4 times against Zimbabwe) including 32 wickets against Zimbabwe at an average of 17.46 runs per dismissal. He, along with other seamers like Javagal Srinath and Ashish Nehra helped India to make it to the finals of the 2003 Cricket World Cup. Zaheer finished the 2003 World cup as 4th highest wicket taker – 18 wickets from 11 matches at an average of 20 runs per wicket .

Currently he is playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore .

    I luv……ZAHEER. He is my life. I never miss his match and don’t watch match when he is not there. I don’t know but I can’t live without him. but my worst cricket moment was that when he gave a flying kiss to that stupid, idiot girl. but never mind. I promise I will meet my ZAHEER one day.


    India’s premier fast bowler, Zaheer Khan can be a force once he is fit… He is more talented person… Our cricket board is not using him properly… ZAHEER ROCKZ.. I LOVE YOU ZAHEER …

    with loads of luv,

    I think Zaheer is one of India’s finest Bowlers. He just needs a little more appreciation to work wonders. I think his talent was not properly utilised in IPL.
