Zaheer Khan returns to play for Mumbai in Ranji Trophy

India's fast-bowling spearhead RCBian Zaheer Khan has been included in the Mumbai Ranji Trophy squad for the fixture against Orissa to be played in Cuttack from November 29.


Zaheer had injured his right hamstring on the first day of the Lord's Test during the tour of England in July. Though he recovered from that injury, a recurring ankle injury
re-surfaced during the practice match against Northampton ahead of the
third Test at Edgbaston, forcing Zaheer to abort the series that India
eventually lost 4-0.
Zaheer pulled out of India's last two tours to Australia after playing
just one Test - with a left heel injury in 2007-08 and with hamstring
problems in 2003-04.

The India squad is scheduled to depart for Australia in the second week of December. Zaheer Khan's fittness in this Ranji match would be tested and subject to his fitness he would travel to Australia with the team.
