One of the finest pacers, if not the finest, to have played for India, Zaheer Khan turns 42 on Wednesday (October 7) and wishes are pouring in for him from all around the world. Hailing from Maharashtra, the left-arm speedster led Indian pace attack for over a decade, and his record is nothing but staggering. Be it swinging the new ball or nailing yorkers and slower deliveries in the end overs, Khan had several weapons in his arsenal to torment batsmen. He even played a vital role in guiding to the 2011 World Cup triumph. On the occasion of Zaheer’s special day, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag and many other prominent members of cricket fraternity extended wishes to the Indian pace legend.

Khan made his international debut way back in October 2000 and didn’t take long in making a mark. He burst onto the scenes with his staggering pace, not a breed a fast bowlers India is known to produce. With Javagal Srinath being in the latter part of his career, Khan took over the baton from him and did a terrific job. With time, Khan indeed lost some pace, but his ability to trouble the batsmen remained the same. Speaking of his career, Khan took 311, 282 and 17 wickets from 92 Tests, 200 ODIs and 17 T20Is respectively. Meanwhile, let’s look at how cricket stars greeted Zaheer Khan.

Khan bid adieu from international cricket in October 2015 as batsmen all around the world took a breather. After hanging up boots, the talisman continued to serve the game by donning the coach’s hat. As of now, Zaheer is mentoring four-time champions Mumbai Indians in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 and will be determined to guide the side to their fifty trophy.
