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

1 min read

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.
