Khan reloaded (-worma)

Zaheer, as we know, has been working hard on regaining his peak form which, at the time of his debut, made him one of the most exciting bowlers to watch on the international circuit.

Baroda and West Zone coach Balwinder Sandhu speaks about the new (or regained) Zaheer that we now see slicing through all batting lineups this domestic season.
"Zaheer has shortened his run-up. He feels very comfortable and is accurate. He is able to swing both ways and is effective while bowling round the wicket. Now he bursts towards the bowling crease and his action is behind the ball. Right through the season, he has surprised batsmen with short balls and movement. Well, one cannot expect him to bowl consistently at 145 plus. I have videographed his bowling and have found out that he achieves good pace while in his rhythm."
Here's to hoping we get to see atleast a good glimpse of the Zaheer of old...the one who announced his arrival by clean-bowling the great Waugh at Nairobi.
