New Delhi: With youngsters such as Umesh Yadav and Varun Aaron making their presence felt, India's pace spearhead Zaheer Khan cannot take his place for granted, feels former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram.
Zaheer, recovering from an ankle surgery, had missed out on India's England tour and the current West Indies series but is expected to play in Australia next month.
"Zaheer can't take his place for granted in the Indian team. He has been out of cricket for a long time and unfit as well. He has started working in the nets, but bowling in the middle is an entirely different thing.
