Mahendra Singh Dhoni praises retiring Zaheer Khan as most clever fast bowler

Indian ODI skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Thursday hailed retiring speedster Zaheer Khan as the ‘most clever fast bowler.’

Zaheer, who was the highest wicket-taker in ICC World Cup 2011 with 21 wickets, played a significant role throughout the series.

Dhoni, who became India’s second captain after Kapil Dev to win the tournament, shared words of praise for the 37-year-old on Twitter.

Dhoni was not the only one to praise Zaheer’s alertness as a pacer as batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar too took to Twitter and lauded the left-armer’s ability to out-think the best of the batsmen.

Zaheer drew curtains to his illustrious career earlier in the day after he issued a statement on Twitter bidding farewell to his beloved sport.
