David ,you are one of the best writers on 'sports vale'I simply loved your compilation on Zaheer Khan .we very well know Zaheer is the best fast bowler INDIA has today but when it comes to recollecting his exploits on the cricket field we are left lurking for facts and figures. This article has updated our the records in the name of Zaheer .In spite of the injuries that have been dogging him he is still the best bet, I hope that he will return to the cricket field at the earliest.Your compilation shows that ZAHEER MADE BOTH HIS TEST AND ONE DAY DEBUT IN THE YEAR 2000 THAT MEANS HIS COMPLETED MORE THAN 10 YEARS OF INTERNATIONAL PLUS the number of earlier years spent in the making of a fast bowler .Research has proved that for a person to excel in any realm of life it takes a minimum of 10 years or 10000 hours of purposeful practice zaheer has put in that much ,that is why he is such a great fast bowler and that is the reason why India cannot lose him at his peak .Many bowlers can pick up the bowling skills exhibited by Zaheer Khan.
