The way he tormented opposition bowling line-ups especially in the limited overs format made him undoubtedly one of the finest talents for India.
His six sixes in an over of Stuart Broad during a 2007 World Twenty 20 match is still a record. He is the only batsman to have hit 6 sixes in a T20I. On the other hand, Zaheer Khan also emerged as the finest fast bowlers from India under Kapil Dev.
He was one of the best exponents of swing bowling. Zaheer was one of the finest reverse swing bowlers and used the old ball to good effect. He was one of the main reasons along with Yuvraj Singh behind India’s World Cup victory in 2011 after 28 years.
