Zaheer Khan's international career may have ended, fears his coach and mentor Sudhir Naik after the left-arm spearhead was not included for the England Test series which commences from July.
Zaheer, who suffered a severe side strain during his Mumbai Indians versus Kings XI Punjab earlier this month, was ignored by the selectors for the five-match Test series against England. Zaheer is currently undergoing treatment in London and is expected to recover by mid-June.
"Although he would be fit for the Test series, the selectors would not like to take a risk with Zaheer's fitness. Their major concern would have been whether he could last for the full series. So, that is why they did not select him," Naik told mid-day.
