Zaheer Khan is a newcomer to Test match cricket. This 22 year old fast bowler was instrumental in Baroda winning the Ranji Trophy. He made his Test match debut in Bangladesh and has so far played in 4 Test matches, picking up eight wickets at 48 runs apiece with a strike rate of 89.70. Though the fact that he is relatively new to the international level does not justify his strike rate. He too will have to get amongst wickets in Zimbabwe if India have to stand a chance of winning the Test series.
