Zaheer Khan should have been a part of the ODI side

Verdict

Our recent ODI performances have shown that we still need Zaheer to be a world beating team. Bhuvneshwar, Shami have done well but need the guidance of Zaheer and his experience to improve their game. With the constant tweaks to the ODI format, Zaheer is canny enough to figure out what changes should be made to bowling plans for the tweaks. That said, Zaheer has to improve his fielding and fitness a lot. He has to contribute as a cricketer not just as a bowler. If he does that, he could even be leading the attack when India defend their title at the 2015 World Cup in Australia-New Zealand.

24.43 % Attack
“ He deserved a chance ”
“ He needs to refuel his confidence with domestic games ”
Dhiraj Salian: Zaheer has been India's pace spearhead since the departure of Javagal Srinath. While other pace bowlers have struggled for a fixed spot in the Indian side, Zaheer constantly kept improving his game.
His swing capabilities both with new and the old ball are remarkable. He might be going through a rough patch now but an opportunity will do wonders to his confidence and help him anchor his spot in the Indian team. Team India clearly needs his services when it comes to ODI games against arch rivals Pakistan and England as the current bowling attack lacks experience.
Monish Moorthy: Zaheer's form has been questioned since his return from injury. He has gone wicketless far too often for a strike bowler and his fitness has become poor.
He needs to prove he still wants to play for India. He has to perform in Ranji to restore the selector's faith in him. Dinda, Bhuvneshwar will take time but atleast they are committed to playing.

Well, Zaheer is going through a lean patch. Failures are stepping stones to success as it says. He has the potential and in my opinion watch out he will soon bounce back and once again will become India's leading fast bowler.

21 Jan 2013
although nicely bowled by new bowler shami and kumar but still jaheer khan should also include in one day squad for out of contry
21 Jan 2013
Zaheer definitely needs a chance... Coz everyone knows the ability he has. And yeah its a fact that he is going through bad form!!! But a chance is must!!! That is the best way he can come through his bad times and excel the best!!!!!!

19 Jan 2013
Though Zaheer is in bad form he deserves a place in Indian team
19 Jan 2013
Zak is a most experience fast bowler in Indian squad.so he deserves a place in Indian squad
19 Jan 2013
he plays well
19 Jan 2013
no left handers fast bowler in the team he should gave been picked
19 Jan 2013
Now those who are playing in one day squad are they more fit than zaheer khan
18 Jan 2013
He is experienced player,so he will be beneficial for us for world cup if he performs good.that's why chance should be given to him
18 Jan 2013
HE IS EXP BOWLER
17 Jan 2013
still in one day squad no fast bowler has performed consistency like zaheer khan
17 Jan 2013
In sports there are many ups and down,so we can't expect a best work again
17 Jan 2013
Zaheer will lose confidence by being out of the team which is a bad sign for indian bowlers
17 Jan 2013
best bowler of modern india
16 Jan 2013
yup he is one of the greatest bowler india have produced and must be given another chance to prove himself
16 Jan 2013
Of course,not. Zaheer is the best bowler
16 Jan 2013
zaheer is india's leading bowler in the present and most importantly the most experienced among all the young bowlers like bhuvaneshwar ,ishant,dinda,etc
16 Jan 2013
He should have been given a chance because he is not in good form does not mean that he is in a bad form.
16 Jan 2013
I think Zaheer should have been there to lead the young bowlers like Ishanth and Dinda. However B.Kumar doesn't look like he needs suggestions or help.
16 Jan 2013
ZAK is the India's All Time Best Pace Bowler
16 Jan 2013
he
15 Jan 2013
he must join in odi then india will win
15 Jan 2013
he would have been a mentor for struggling Indian pace bowling attack..
15 Jan 2013
Zaheer could control d continuos ticking of d scoreboard.He would have decreased the score n increased d chances of pur team's victory.
14 Jan 2013
if there are only yougsters who will be there to guide them
14 Jan 2013
he will do magic to india in odi
14 Jan 2013
Because he is a really great bowler
13 Jan 2013
A bad series must not be black future for bowler
13 Jan 2013
Yeah, Zack could have lend the experience whch the young bowling dept needs badly.
13 Jan 2013
I am sure if zaheer khan were in one day squad it would difficult for engald to set a target above 300
12 Jan 2013
he was in gr8 form but BCCI mass up with him
12 Jan 2013
zaheer is the most experienced so he should be offered another chance
12 Jan 2013
Zaheer must lead the bowling dept.!!
12 Jan 2013
yeah he is the best bowler
12 Jan 2013
let him play till he feels he can't
12 Jan 2013
not even one Left handed fat bowler in the squad poor selection
11 Jan 2013
england scored more than 300 run only due to unexperiences indian bowler, its not easy to fill up the zaheer khan place in ODI in a day
11 Jan 2013
He is the most successful bowler...
11 Jan 2013
Ofcourse Zaheer should have been in the squad for ODI because he is the most experienced
11 Jan 2013
He will definitely come back to the team
11 Jan 2013
He should've bee a part. Though new talents like Bhuvi and Shami and I totally love them, but if Zak would have been there things could be better.!

09 Jan 2013
the youngsters have already got a chance and werent able to prove themselves. there are no good bowlers in India except Zaheer Khan who can even manage with the bat sometimes, when required. He definitely needs to be in the team!
09 Jan 2013

06 Jan 2013
Zaheer being a most experience bowler in India n squad he deserve to be in squad
06 Jan 2013

05 Jan 2013

05 Jan 2013
he is really a expirenced bowler and knock Pak Bats man ely
04 Jan 2013
zaheer khan has leads indian bowling in odi, from such a long time how it could be thought he should not be the part of the ODI side
04 Jan 2013

04 Jan 2013
He is the only experienced bowler we now.Bhuvaneshwar kumar might spelling the ball good but he have lack of experience and he don't know how to handle the situation so definitely zaheer have to be in playing XI for couple of years.
03 Jan 2013
He definitely deserves a chance. he has to be in the Indian squad!
03 Jan 2013
he played well enough in d INDvsENG tests too! he should have been in the team. it will be a wise decision if the selectors choose him for the coming ODI series against ENGLAND.
03 Jan 2013
He has the ability and he proved himself in the Ranji matches again. he took 6 wickets and became the man of the match. we really need Zaheer Khan in the team! NOW!
03 Jan 2013

03 Jan 2013
Zak Is The Best ODI Bowler !!!!!!
03 Jan 2013
Yes, India missing an experience bowler who could deliver at crunch time.
03 Jan 2013

Youngers do it for india now
19 Feb 2013
he is unfit to find a place in Indian team because he has lost his rythm,temo and spark.The time has come for the old fox to make way for talented youngsters
18 Feb 2013
Make way for youngsters
08 Feb 2013
zaheer's form in ipl this season is critical to revive his ilimted overs career
08 Feb 2013
he is well past his prime
07 Feb 2013
i think zak will not b able 2 play 4 2015 worldcup.. so bowlers like kumar, ahmed, dinda should b given chance
06 Feb 2013
he is not in form d his fitness not up to the mark
31 Jan 2013
There are players who are in better form than him
31 Jan 2013
He is injured yet again
30 Jan 2013
Youngsters r doing a great job,but he should be selected against us Ind v/s Aus odi series...
30 Jan 2013
right
30 Jan 2013
oDI needs youngsters
30 Jan 2013
he should improve to get his name back in the team
29 Jan 2013
he is a bit tooo expensive sometimes
29 Jan 2013
He is not fit and also not in form
29 Jan 2013
he should concentrate on tests and be no1 bowler there
29 Jan 2013
Zaheer should let youngsters to take responsibilty in Shorter part of the game
29 Jan 2013
He is now getting old and also losing confidence
29 Jan 2013
cauze 2015 world cup near they have to get ready cauze zaheer would not be there
22 Jan 2013
keep his in test but need young quicks in Odi
22 Jan 2013
He is in poor form
22 Jan 2013
right
22 Jan 2013
He's ready for test not ODI
22 Jan 2013
Zaheer need more fitnessc
18 Jan 2013
I dont find place for him in team currently...
17 Jan 2013
As Zaheer is suffering from his poor form, its correct to give chance to young bowlers (bhuvaneshwar kumar and ahmed as well).
16 Jan 2013
he should concentrate on test cricket only
16 Jan 2013
he should get back his form and the reverse swing by playing in domestic games :)
16 Jan 2013
Going by the likes of the current situation, i guess Zak's time has come to an end!
16 Jan 2013
youngsters should get more chances
14 Jan 2013
zaheer should take a time out work on his fitness and come back against aussies series
12 Jan 2013
He lacks pace these days and became a sloppy fielder..
10 Jan 2013
He's too old!!!
10 Jan 2013
Zak has had a poor season so far .. he has done well in domestic matches. With Mumbai almost set to go to ranji semis he should continue playing there and concentrate on australia test series
09 Jan 2013
its time untested youngsters get the chance and selection committee has given a strong message that big underperforming names wont be playing
09 Jan 2013
he has been spearheading the indian bowling setup for many years. but with his fitness levels its difficult for him to play in all 3 formats. he should play domestic cricket and is hopefully picked against australia. as long as odi is concerned he should retire
08 Jan 2013
he should be first decide about which format he thinks he can give his 100% and i think so he should first play the domestic matches and should get back his rythm and fitness back without getting any wickets under his belt he should not play for india kepping the aussie and the south africa series in the mind in which we need the best pacers which are fully fit and are in form
07 Jan 2013
Zaheer should concentrate on Tests rather
07 Jan 2013
but he is a very very bad fielder....
06 Jan 2013
@DJ Akash, @Ankith, Zaheer got 1 year since his comeback in Australia. His series hauls have been in single digits, the signs were there to see during the IPL. He really has to work on his fitness, otherwise I'm afraid his skills are of no use.
04 Jan 2013
Zaheer needs to show his previous class of bowling in domestic.
03 Jan 2013
He really needs to improve his fielding.. and concentrate more on his bowling.
