Zaheer Khan, Out in the Cold, Retires from International Cricket

October 15 : Zaheer Khan has picked up 311 wickets in 92 Tests and 282 wickets in 200 ODIs. He has been losing out to the younger and fitter left-arm seamers in recent times.

Out-of-favour India fast bowler Zaheer Khan announced his retirement from international cricket on Thursday. Zaheer played a key role in helping India lift the 2011 World Cup. He was the joint-highest wicket-taker (21) with Pakistan's Shahid Afridi in the showpiece event held in the sub-continent.

President of the BCCI, Shashank Manohar complimented Zaheer on his wonderful career and said: "The BCCI appreciates Zaheer Khan's outstanding service to Indian Cricket. He served Indian cricket with remarkable passion and commitment. Being a fast bowler in the Indian sub-continent is challenging but he led the bowling attack with distinction and contributed significantly to the success of Indian cricket. I wish him all the best for the future."
