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.
