Zaheer Khan Biography & Wiki, Height, Weight, Age
Zaheer Khan (born 7 October 1978) is a former Indian cricketer who was the member of the Indian national cricket team from 2000 till 2014. He also played for Worcestershire in County Cricket and played for Mumbai and Delhi Daredevils in Indian domestic cricket. He was the second-most successful Indian pace bowler in Test cricket, behind Kapil Dev.
Khan started his domestic career by playing for Baroda. In the early years of his career, Khan was known for his hostile seam and pace bowling, especially fast inch-perfect yorkers. In a bid to improve his bowling, he moved to England for a short stint with Worcestershire in 2006. A left-arm fast-medium bowler, Khan was best known for his ability to “move the ball both ways off the wicket and swing the old ball at some pace”. Khan continues to excel in reverse swing with the old ball. He is praised for his performances on flat subcontinent pitches and the controlling of different types of cricket balls. He was one of the key members of the 2011 ODI World Cup winning team, leading the pace attack with 21 wickets in just 9 games. In 2011 he was conferred with the Arjuna Award, India’s second highest sporting award by the President of India. Khan’s career is also noted for recurring injuries, which often interrupted his progress at the international level. That is also the reason Zaheer has set up ProSport Fitness & Services, a special rehab & training center in association with Adrian Le Roux and Andrew Leipus.
Zaheer Khan was selected as one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 2008. Zaheer Khan announced his retirement from international cricket in October 2015.
He was born on 7 October 1978 in Shrirampur, Maharashtra, India to parents Zakia and Bakhtiyar Khan. He has an elder brother Zeeshan and younger brother Anees.
