Zaheer Khan

Zaheer Khan is a former Indian cricketer who played as a left hand fast bowler. Zaheer Khan\'s career was one that was peppered with as many injuries as successes, including a nerve twitch that kept him out for nearly two years and he struggled to get back to full fitness between 2003 and 2006. When he wasn't injured, Zaheer Khan was always the man India relied upon to get the crucial wickets. In 2006, Zaheer played for Worcestershire picking up 78 wickets and taking the nick name 'Zippy Zakky.' He was one of the most crucial elements of the team that went on to reach the summit of the ICC Test rankings and lifted the 2011 World Cup, which he described as "my greatest cricketing achievement." He was considered a vital resource ahead of a lengthy 2011-12 Test season in which India embarked upon tours of Australia and South Africa. He returned home the very first day with a hamstring injury and India were at sea in both serie. His return at Johanessburg stemmed the string of away Test losses India stacked up. In his final Test, he took a five wicket haul even at the age of 35. His achievement was overshadowed, like almost every other detail of the match, by Brendon McCullum's monumental triple ton. Zaheer ended his career with 311 Test wickets, second only to Kapil Dev among Indian fast bowlers.
